One of the fields that ships with Word is one that will simulate the Go To command. As you all know, the Go To command springs to life when you click F5 or CTRL G.
This particular feature will allow you to define a field that will appear as a button in your document. If you double-click on the field, Word will jump to the location in your document specified by the field. The field will look something like this:
GotoButton Location Display
Location will be the name of the bookmark or Go To location to which you would like to jump and Display is the text you would like displayed by the field code. When you double-click on the displayed text or graphic, Word will jump to the location specified by Location.
Follow to steps below to learn how to use this field:
- Place your cursor where you would like your button to appear in your document.
- Click CTRL + F9 to insert field brackets.
- Between the brackets, key in GotoButton, then the name of the location where you would like to jump to.
- Key in the text you would like displayed or insert a graphic to be used as a button.
- Click Shift + F9 to toggle your field code and show only the Display text.
It’s pretty simple but makes your documents look very professional!
