Creating a relative link, or navigation link, will provide a way to link to a topic relative to the current one. HelpNDoc can create navigation links to:

  • Default topic - The topic which has been set as the default one in the project options
  • First topic - The very first topic in the table of contents
  • Last topic - The very last topic in the table of contents
  • Parent topic - The parent topic of the topic containing the link
  • Previous topic - The topic just before the one containing the link. If "Sibling topic only" is checked, it will link to the previous topic at the exact same hierarchy level
  • Next topic - The topic just after the one containing the link. If "Sibling topic only" is checked, it will link to the previous topic at the exact same hierarchy level


To create a navigation link:

  1. Provide the link text. This field is not enabled if you have already selected the text in the topic editor
  2. Choose what kind of navigation link to create
  3. For previous and next topics, specify whether to link to a sibling topic or not
