    Hi Sabina,

    thanks for contacting us.

    Have you already had a look at the following page in our documentation: https://www.k15t.com/display/VSN/Linking+to+Pages+in+a+Scroll+Versions+space ?

    Please make sure to use the "browse" functionality when inserting links in spaces managed with Scroll Versions, by doing so the links will be resolved correctly within the version and will work after publish.

    I hope that helps. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

    Best,
    Nils

    Hi, this is what I am doing, using "browse". However, I am also using the advanced option when linking when I want to link to a particular Heading on a page. So if I do this, the links will not work, is this correct? I mean, they will not work just as I described in my first post?

    Hi Sabina,

    linking to anchors on versioned pages isn't fully supported yet.

    We've already tracked the requirement in our JIRA system: https://k15t.jira.com/browse/VSN-2080
    Please sign up at https://k15t.jira.com/secure/Signup!default.jspa to watch, comment on or vote for this issue. You'll then get a notification for every status update on the issue.

    Hi, I would like to make one more comment that I think is connected with the whole linking issue. When I publish new versions I keep getting loads of messages that go like this: "Page **** contains a link to a page.***v1 that cannot be published."

    When I verify the links, it turns out they are created through a Browse linking option (not advanced or anything else). Also, if I publish anyway, without fixing any of these links. then all those links work correctly... Problem is every time I publish I get more and more of these messages even though there don't seem to be any problems. I dont get it, what am I doing wrong?

    Just to make myself more clear, these are not regular blue 'messages' that I am talking about, these are in fact listed as 'warnings' which makes it even more confusing for me.

    Roman, how do I export the whole space, I am sorry but I cant figure it out. Also, to what format should I export it?

    I was looking for export option in all the wrong place, now I see where it is :) But still, which format should I export to?
