In Depth Information
A bookmark in a Word 2013 document marks a specific place.
This makes it possible for you to move the cursor to that spot or
refer to it elsewhere in the document. The part of the text that
you mark can be as little as the insertion point between two
adjacent characters, or as large as the entire document.
When you mark one or more words or a picture with a book-

document by inserting Ref fields that contain the name of the
bookmark. A bookmark can also serve as the location to which
the cursor jumps when you click a hyperlink.
