Cre­ate in­ter­nal hy­per­links within Google Docs

Hav­ing re­cently switched to Google Docs to write and edit my doc­u­ments, I dis­cov­ered a use­ful op­tion whereby you can cre­ate links to text within the same doc­u­ment. It’s ba­si­cally hy­per­link­ing text to another doc­u­ment sec­tion, which is ideal if you have large doc­u­ments like I do.

You first need to book­mark the text/ head­ing that you want to hy­per­link to. High­light the text, click the In­sert tab, then click Book­mark. Next, high­light the text you want to use as a hy­per­link, then press Ctrl+k to open the Link pop-up menu. Here, click in­side the Link field, click the Book­marks drop­down menu, se­lect the text you book­marked, then click Ap­ply (see screen­shot). This text will now act as a hy­per­link that you can click to jump to your book­marked text. Re­peat this process to cre­ate as many book­marks and hy­per­links as you want.
