    Bookmarks not showing in "insert hyperlink" list


      I'm hoping someone can help. I have hyperlinks to academic references throughout my project. The last couple I've tried to add haven't worked - I create the bookmark at the destination, then highlight the text in the project I want to link from, click the insert hyperlink button and insert my screen tip text, but when I scroll down the list of available bookmarks the one I've just created doesn't appear. I've saved all files so that isn't the problem. Strangely, if I skip to the next instance it happens again (that is, doesn't work), but the next one works OK. This is the code for the four bookmarks - the first works, the next two don't, the last one does.

          I suspect it's the length of the bookmark and the resulting link to the bookmark (which, of course, is increased by whatever folder paths are part of the link, as well).

          Your character counts are:

          1. 217
          2. 277
          3. 294
          4. 208

          You might try shrinking bookmark #2 or #3 to just a few characters, as a test.

          There must be some method you could use to seriously shorten these bookmarks! Perhaps some grouping by categories?

          Good luck,
