I just thought of something to ask you before I do indeed fill in the names for each section. How does it work best as there are 2 parts? There are 25 sections in the first part and 29 in the second part. I will put the page numbers in the mw as well with the title & word count. Will that be sufficient? Since we are waiting here a day of two, time is on our side.

I will take out the sections we don't need, that is no problem.

Since the chapters are linked, you could put a

Code: Select all

<a href="" target="blank">Link to text</a>
so that the reader just clicks the link in the MW and is taken directly to the chapter to be read. Do you know how to do that? If not, let me know and I will put an example on section 1.

Hello,
I do not know how to attach the link you have referred to. It does sound like a wonderful item. Hope that by you attaching the link I will be able to understand just how to do it on my own. :D
Please do put an example on Section 1 as well as removing the unnecessary sections.

I have put the first link in the Notes field of section 1, but here is how you do it.

First, copy and paste the above link into the Notes field of each section, then Save it. You will want to do this for each section to begin with, it will make your life much easier! Then, in another tab, have the book open at the spot where the table of contents for the the book is displayed. You will see that the page number is blue, indicating that there is a link embedded in that number. Right click on the number that you are copying, click Copy Link Address. Go back to the MW, open up the Note section for that section. Where you need to paste the chapter link in between the "" in the code, right after the <a href= . Once you have pasted the chapter link between the "", save the section. The Link to Text should be blue. If you hover over it, then it should be the link you copied from the book. Let me know if you need any help!

Hello, yes I am trying sooooo severly though I can not seem to get a hand with the pointing finger. I am giving it up for the time being. Thinking that possibly tomorrow my computer will be refreshed and it will be a breeze for me then. Thank you for sharing the knowledge with me on how to get the reader better access to whichever section they have chosen.
Appreciatively
yours,
April

Hello again Ann,
Yes I did just give your above suggestion another try to the same ending. I did just as you had mentioned to no avail. Operator, me of course, error more than likely. Though I loved your thought I do suppose it will have to be the reader's option to read just where their section is located. I do not wish to have you attach the chapter to each section and since I can't that is better than nothing in my opinion. Have a great day Ann!
April
