I can see when I create a link in the text editor in Maestro that the dropdown contains the option to link to an anchor. No where does it show how to create an anchor ID. I've tried adding anchor IDs manually in the source code editor in a range of places, using a range of tag types, and none of them work. 

How do you create the anchor point itself?

      Hi Stephen,

      You can use a rule helper in the rule editor dialog to generate the scrollTo code for you.

      In the rule editor, right-click the form field you want to scroll to and select Scroll To.

      This will only do the scroll as long as the field you want to scroll to is on the current page.

        Unlike a flat HTML page, Avoka Transact Applications are multi page applications with data persistence and respond dynamically, therefore you should use JavaScript to scroll to a different part of the form. Avoka Transact Maestro contains some helper functions to automatically navigate around the form, based on custom rules.

        Have a look at the API Documentation for functions

        Scroll.scrollTo() 

        and

        Form.goToPage()


        There are several questions on this forum about these functions which might help you:

          What is the point of this functionality if there is no intuitive way to use it? Or is it a legacy item that should have been removed to avoid confusing the developer?

            I'll look into those, but what is the point of having the option to link to an anchor in the text editor if there is no way for it to work in the conventional sense?
