Use bookmarks

Bookmarks are unnamed markers on topics that can be used to help you navigate through specific topics on your map or to temporarily mark topics that need attention. Bookmarks can be useful for moving through the map in a predefined manner. You can add Bookmarks to topics individually or use the Power Bookmarks command to add bookmarks based on topic properties.

Bookmarks can be used in Map View and Outline View.

 If you want to add a named marker to use as a destination for a hyperlink, use labels instead.
