    Hi Pavel,

    with the way Scroll Versions is implemented currently, it's not technically easy to implement the ability to link to an anchor and be sure that links are working after the space was published. We have a feature request to have a better support for anchor links in versioned spaces: https://k15t.jira.com/browse/VSN-2080. Sign up for an account in our Jira to watch and vote for this issue.

    There are, however, a few workarounds I can propose. You could try linking to an anchor using the Advanced tab. You would have to provide the page title the way it would be in the published space. For example, I know that the link should point to Page A and anchor "anchor". I would edit the link on the versioned page in the master space and insert this text in Advanced tab of the linking dialogue: Page A#anchor. Like this:

    The workaround above would help when you publish to new or existing spaces. That way anchor links will point to the published page. The downside is that they won’t work in versioned (master) space. But at least your end-users who only get access to published content could use them. Do you publish the documentation to other spaces?

    Pavel,

    if you don’t use publishing functionality at all (this is how I understand it), then there is no workaround I can offer. You would need to wait for https://k15t.jira.com/browse/VSN-2080.
