How to add links within a document?

I read that in order to add links within a document you need to add a # sign and the name of what you want to call the link. Also, what I read is that after you type in the #name that the link will be visible so that the link can be made. What am I doing wrong? Making links within a document is crucial.

Scott what are you using to create a document? Are you using Constant Contact for a newsletter, are you making document in Google Docs and copying and pasting it to your WordPress or something else?

I’m trying in the document that if they want to jump from one topic to another, they can link on the word to jump to a certain point within the document. In Microsoft Word,it’s called Bookmarks.

Go to Posts (add new or click on existing page) -> Use the Plus Icon -> Click Heading -> Enter your heading text -> On the right hand side under Block Settings click on Advanced -> Choose a word that will become your link into the HTML Anchor field (Remember what you type – also make sure there is no spaces. So if you use 2 words it would look like this
From here you will add the Link to your page jump. Type some text if you don’t have text already. Highlight the text/section you would like to be the link.
Click on link option (kind of looks like a paperclip) -> Type in the HTML Anchor you created earlier but add the hashtag in front of it.
Click Publish (you will not be able to test out the jump in preview – Also you can check your website by opening up a new tab or window after it is published).
Hope this makes sense. Let me know how it goes =)
