Next Page Button

Consider adding a button or link at the bottom of each page that your reader can click on to advance to the next section without having to scroll back to the top.  Navigating your project will be much simpler if your reader does not need to work his/her way back to the menubar after each section.

This is very easy to do:

STEP 1:  At the bottom of each page, either (a) type the text you want (ex: NEXT PAGE) or (b) insert the image you want to use as your button.

Sample button

STEP 2:  Select the text or the image, then click the hyperlink button in the toolbar

STEP 3:  Make sure you’ve expanded the drop-down menu next to “Or link to existing content” by clicking on the triangle

Make sure you’ve expanded the drop-down menu to view a list of existing pages.
Scroll through the links to your existing pages and select the next page.

STEP 4: Select the page you want to link to.

STEP 5: If you’re using an image (rather than text — e.g., “Next Page >”, set border attribute to 1px solid white (see images below).

NOTEUnlike other links, next page links should not open in a new page.

This also works for “previous page” buttons/links, as well.  Click the one below to return to the referring page (General Checklist)
