Linking in Topics

There are multiple ways you can create links to elements within a topic, to other topics, or to external resources.
Adding a link enables you to provide contextual or supplemental information. You can create a link to another location in the topic, another topic, or an external resource. Depending on where you’re linking to, you’ll either insert a local link, cross-reference, or key reference.

Local Links
Direct links to elements in the same topic or another topic. For more information, see Local Links.
Cross-reference (xref) Links
A direct link to a file in the map or an external resource, such as a website or PDF file. For more information, see Cross-References.
Key References (keyrefs)
An indirect link to a key assigned to a topic in a publication map. For more information, see Key References.
