Bookmark is a powerful tool that helps you to mark a place in the document to find again easily. You can enter many bookmarks in the document and give each one a unique name to identify easily.

Document Editor provides built-in dialog to add, delete, and navigate bookmarks within the document. To add a bookmark, select a portion of text in the document. After that, jump to the location or add links to it within the document using built-in hyperlink dialog. You can also delete bookmarks from a document.

Bookmark names need to begin with a letter. They can include both numbers and letters, but not spaces. To separate the words, use an underscore.
Bookmark names starting with an underscore are called hidden bookmarks. For example, bookmarks generated for table of contents.
