How to create and link pages, 1
When you run PaperKiller from the “Start” menu, the software opens the last edited file, or shows a new manual / hypertext document. To force a new hypertext, choose “File >New”.
As you can see, the toolbars are very similar to MS Word ones. For the moment, just notice that the white cell at the bottom of the window shows the page number, “0”. As PaperKiller manages a whole page set, each page has a name and a number: the name is under the cell (”Untitled”).
Now let’s write a document that points to some different pages. First, we enter some “dummy” text...
...then we will place a link to the page “Page 1”. This page doesn’t exists, but we don’t need to create it directly (even if it is possible, with “File >Add new page...”), as a page creation can be done simultaneously with a link definition.
Now we will see how. First, let’s select the text block to be linked...
...then, let’s press the link button in the toolbar (sheet and chain, or “Insert >Link” from the main menu).
The following window will show:
In this window PaperKiller lists all pages found in the current hypertext / manual. So, for the moment, we have one page only. As we want to link to a new page (will be “Page 1”), we have to choose the last tab (”link to a new empty page”):
Let’s press OK.
What’s happened? PaperKiller has created a new page, the page #1 (as you can see from the white box in the bottom of the window). We can give this page a name, we can select a background, and so on, with “Format >Page properties”.
