Cannot create in-page link from new button to symbol


#1

Hi,

I have created a new button / text link on a page, which I want to link to a "contact area" symbol at the bottom of the page. Unfortunately, the option to create an in page link to a symbol is not available - the "unique ID" doesn't exist for this.

Can someone speculate as to why this is?

Cheers,
Sam

Hi, a symbol is not a real html element on a page that can receive an ID, it is just a set of elements that are named, thus there is no symbol element that will be generated with an ID. You need to first drag out a section for example, and then put your contact symbol inside of that section with your link on the page, linked to the section by id.

Cheers, Dave

Hi Dave,

Thanks for getting back. I worked that out as a work around, but I must admit, you would think that if you were making a "contact area" or something at the bottom of a page (an area which repeats uniformly from page to page), and up top you have a "navbar symbol" or something, then being able to link from a link in the symbol up top, to the symbol below would be logical no?

The way you do it means I have to make a new page, make a new section and name it, drop the symbol in, and then go and edit the symbols / links that are present on that page in order to ensure that they recognise the "new" section. Surely to just add a "symbol" and have it be recognised by the links on the page would be better?

Just a thought, STUNNING WORK. You guys really sincerely changed the way I design.
Big love. Beers Owed.
