Bookmark in Google Docs
How to Bookmark in Google Docs ? As you navigate through Google Drive, it’s a good idea to bookmark some of your most frequently used documents. This way, you can easily get to them when you need them most.
The process is easy to do in Google Docs and works just like an anchor tag on a web page.
Add a Bookmark
If you frequently revisit a particular document on Google Drive, it may be worth creating a bookmark for it. This will allow you to quickly access it without having to navigate through the folder hierarchy. The process is relatively simple and can be accomplished with just a few clicks of your mouse. To do this, simply open the Google Docs app you wish to pin to your bookmarks bar. Next, select the star icon on the right-hand side of the address bar and a small drop-down menu will appear. From there, you can set the name of your shortcut, choose the Bookmarks bar as the folder it will appear in, and click Done.
Link to a Bookmark
In Google Docs, you can link to a bookmark just like you would to any other URL. Just highlight any text you want to make it easy for readers to skip to, then open the Insert menu and select “Bookmark.” When you click this option, a small blue bookmark icon appears in the left margin, denoting where a reader will be brought when they click the bookmark. You can also share your bookmark with others and it will be available in Google Drive so anyone with access to the document will be able to use it.
You can check the validity of a hyperlink or cross-reference in the add-in pane, as well as edit, unlink, or delete them individually or in groups. Invalid or questionable links are marked with an exclamation point (!) and a question mark (?).
Create a Bookmark in Google Docs
If you have a large amount of documents that you frequently use, bookmarks can be very helpful in making it easier to find specific parts of your documents. This can be particularly useful if you have multiple people accessing the same documents. To create a bookmark in Google Docs, you simply need to highlight the part of the document that you want to save as a bookmark. Once you’ve done this, you can then go to the top of the document and click Insert | Link.
You can also search for bookmarks by using the ‘@bookmarks’ command in the address bar. This will search your saved bookmarks and let you find the one that you’re looking for. However, this feature is not widely rolled out and only works with the Google Chrome browser. You can also install a Chrome extension called Coda that allows you to search for bookmarks through the address bar and document contents. It’s worth mentioning that Coda also allows you to create shortcuts for specific documents on your desktop, so that you can quickly access them without having to navigate through your folder structure.
Remove a Bookmark
The ability to bookmark a web page is a great way to save time and keep track of your favorite sites. However, there is a downside to this feature. If you have created a lot of bookmarks, it can be hard to find the ones that you need. To make it easier to find your bookmarks, you can add a shortcut to the toolbar that will list all of your bookmarks in a handy list. You can also use an extension such as Coda to quickly and easily create new or modify existing bookmarks and hyperlinks.
To remove a bookmark from your computer, simply click the hamburger icon located in the bottom right of your screen and select the option to delete a bookmark.
Benefits of Using Bookmarks in Google Docs
Using bookmarks is an excellent way to organize your online content and make it easier to find it again. Moreover, they allow you to save filter control selections and other run-time content customizations that you apply when running a page, and reapply them later.
You can create a bookmarked page in Google Docs by going to the Web Content menu and clicking Add Bookmark. On the Add Bookmark form, enter a name for the bookmark and then click OK. You can also associate the bookmark with a tag and set its permissions.
A bookmark is an Internet file that stores the URL (uniform resource locator) of a Web site that you want to visit. The URL is stored within a bookmark so that you can easily access the website without entering its URL manually. Once you create a bookmark, it becomes a permanent part of the browser and can be used for future visits to the Web site.
In addition, bookmarks can be shared with other users. This feature is especially useful for websites that have a lot of users, because it allows them to share their favorite pages with others.
There are several benefits to using bookmarks in Google Docs, including being able to easily find information that you need and having the ability to share it with other users. For example, if you have a lot of files in your Google Docs folder and want to make it easy for your colleagues to find the information they need, you can create a bookmark and then share it with other users.
Another benefit of bookmarking is that it can be very helpful when re-creating sections of a document. For example, if you use formatting marks in your section to create different formatting styles, it can be difficult to remember how the formatting was created and how it should be re-created if you need to re-create the section.
The 4D Write Pro v16 version of the software has added support for creating and managing bookmarks in your documents. In addition to a new Bookmark command in the Links ribbon group, you can also rename, delete, and move bookmarks in your documents.
How to Create Bookmarks in Google Docs
Google Docs offers bookmarks as a way of storing URL (uniform resource locator) information about pages that the user has visited on the web. This information can be accessed later without having to enter the original URL. The browser will display a list of bookmarked pages, making it easy to access the one you want.
A user can create a bookmark by selecting the Bookmarks widget and clicking the Add () – Bookmark button. This opens a form in which the user can name the bookmark and provide its URL and description. The user can also select a tag for the bookmark and set its permissions.
Once the bookmark is created, it will appear in the Bookmarks widget and be accessible by clicking the Star icon (). The user can then subscribe to the folder’s changes, move the item to a different folder, assign permissions to the item, or delete it.
The Bookmarks widget can be viewed in several ways, including by listing all the items or by showing the selected items in a table format. The default view is a simple list that displays the number of items and subfolders, and the number of visits for each item.
Another option is to display the selected items in a table format that shows the items in columns with their names, URLs, and modified dates. The tables can be sorted by date or by name.
When the Bookmarks widget is viewed in a table format, it also offers an Info panel that lets you search for bookmarks and folders and manage them. The information displayed in the panel can include an updated version of the item’s title, its current position in the folder hierarchy, and its related assets.
When the browser receives a redirect URL, such as a permanently moved http return code, an HTTP “refresh” header containing a new URL, or a Meta refresh tag, the browser will automatically indicate that the bookmark has been redirected and offer the user of the browser an opportunity to update the bookmark. In addition, a history field of the updated bookmark that contains an “OLD–MARK” field or comment may be saved, and the user of the browser will be given an opportunity to select whether the value in the “OLD–MARK” field or a similar identifier should be replaced by the redirect URL.
How to Link to a Bookmark
A bookmark is a list of Web pages that you have previously visited. If you want to go to a specific page at a later time, you can click the bookmark name and it will be brought up in the Navigator. This is a very convenient way to get back to the page you were on at a later time.
You can create a bookmark in Google Docs by selecting the text you want to bookmark and then clicking the “Bookmark” button in the Links ribbon group. Then, you can give the bookmark a name and set its permissions. You can also tag the bookmark with a category and associate it with a portal asset (e.g., media file or blog post).
Currently, when a user selects a bookmark and then receives a “redirect” (e.g., a permanently-moved HTTP return code or an HTTP “refresh” header containing a new URL or a “Meta Refresh” containing a new URL) from the browser, the user is given the option of updating the bookmark to reflect the new information by manually revising the URL associated with the bookmark. However, this option is a tedious one for most users.
In a more streamlined approach, the method of claim 1 detects when a “redirect” is received, and automatically updates the bookmark when the original URL with which it was linked is invalid. When the redirect is detected, the browser displays a pop-up window 210 asking for update instructions from the user of the browser and giving the user an opportunity to update the bookmark. If the user accepts the updated bookmark, the new redirect URL is stored in the bookmarked URL and the browser is redirected to the new site identified by the redirect URL.
How to Remove a Google Docs Bookmark
Although it isn’t as simple as it sounds, it is possible to remove your favorite bookmark. The easiest way to do this is to click on the bookmarked document, and then right-click on it to open the context menu. Then, choose the Remove option in the context menu that appears. 
In the same window, you can also delete or rename the bookmark in question by choosing the Rename option in the same context menu. You may have to click on the name of the bookmarked file to confirm the action, which is a bit annoying. Alternatively, you can delete the entire folder by choosing the Remove button on the left side of the folder list window and clicking OK. The resulting window should have the requisite yellow ribbon to boot.
