Bookmarks

Bookmarks are essentially a Word function. Bookmarks are extensively used by Pathagoras in the construction of Glossaries, and for the quick retrieval of text from a Glossary. When you are editing glossary terms (whether adding text to a glossary, or deleting text from a glossary, (especially if you are editing at the 'boundaries'), you must know where the bookmarks are.

 

Displaying bookmarks:

To display the bookmark character (they appear as dark gray brackets or a font slightly larger than the ones used by the paragraph in which it appears):

click the ‘Pathagoras Features’ dropdown

click the ‘View’ menu

click ‘Toggle Bookmarks’ element.
 

Deleting bookmarks:

To delete a bookmark set, position your cursor in the bookmarked text. Then, using the Word ribbon at the top of the document, click the Insert tab and then the Bookmark element in that tab. The bookmark that surrounds the area where the cursor is sitting will be highlighted. If you want to delete just the bookmark, click the Delete button. If you want to delete the text and the bookmark, click the GoTo button. That will highlight the entirety of the bookmarked text. Click the Delete button to get rid of the bookmarks. Close the screen and press Delete to get rid of the text(which should still be highlighted.

If all you want to do is delete text that happens also to be bookmarked, highlight the text and delete it. (Make sure you have captured the bookmarks themselves.

Adding bookmarks:

Bookmarks always come pairs. It is not possible to add a single bookmark. So you cannot add a bookmark at the beginning of a block of text, navigate to the end of the text you want to bookmark and then add the closing marker. (Same with deleting bookmarks. You cannot delete a single bookmark. To add a bookmark (or expand or retract the scope of a bookmark), highlight the target range of text.  Click the Insert tab in the Word ribbon. Click the Bookmark button. Provide a name for the bookmark and press the Add button. (Names must start with a letter and cannot contain special characters or spaces.)

 

The pilcrow and other paragraph marks When the 'ShowAll' (¶) (pilcrow) character is clicked, the hidden text appears and disappears. (Home tab)

 Those gray brackets are bookmarks. They are one of several (normally hidden) markings that Microsoft adds to your documents. Microsoft makes showing most formatting markers pretty simple. Look under File | Options | Display You can toggle them On/Off by clicking the .

 

But bookmarks are different: It’s File | Options | Advanced |Show Document Content. Check on or off the Show Bookmarks.

 

However, we try to make that easier. Click the Pathagoras Features | ‘View’ Options. Click the Toggle bookmarks
