You can insert a Navigation Links placeholder into a topic or template. In the compiled help system, the navigation links allow the user to toggle between previous, next, last, first, and default help topics.


HelpSmith allows you to customize the navigation links, so you can select which types of links you want to display and specify if you want to display text links or image-based buttons. Also, you can customize the text styles of links, select an existing style scheme for navigation buttons, or set a custom image file for each link type.
