If you ever have a Google Doc that’s tens or hundreds of pages long, it can be difficult to find a specific section of text that someone has asked you to reference. To save time, it can be valuable to provide a direct link to a specific paragraph in your document. Here’s how.

  • Put your cursor at the start of the paragraph that you want to link to.
  • Head to the Insert menu at the top of the page, and choose Bookmark.
  • You will see that a ribbon gets inserted into the document where your cursor was previously.
  • Click the ribbon icon.
  • You’ll see that you have the option to get a link, or to remove the bookmark. Right-click on the word Link, and choose Copy Link Address. (If you ever decide you no longer want the bookmark to be there, you would just remove it by clicking Remove.)
  • Now, when you send that link to anyone, the Doc will be opened right at the paragraph that you bookmarked earlier.

    Thank you for this linking tip. I assume that if you include a link address to a paragraph in a Google Doc it would be necessary to have the permissions set in the doc to “anyone with a link”. Am I understanding this correctly?
