You can create hyperlinks to any specific paragraph in Google Documents and thus save the reader from scrolling. Links can also point to specific slides in Google Presentations

Links to a Specific Paragraph in Google Documents

For instance, this Google Document (scrapped from Wikipedia) describing the life and work of Barack Obama is 31-pages long. And this hyperlink points to the fourth paragraph on Page 27 where the article discusses the Nobel Peace Prize that Obama won in 2009.

It is easy to create links that point to any specific paragraph in a long Google Document. Just scroll to that paragraph and put your cursor in the beginning of that paragraph.

The full hyperlink to that paragraph can now be copied from your browser’s address bar and it will look something like this:

Link to a Specific Slide in Google Presentation

Like Google Documents, you can also create links to any specific slide in Google Presentations though without using bookmarks.

Open the Google presentation and navigate to the slide that you wish to link to (make sure that the sharing mode is public). Now copy the hyperlink from your browser’s address bar as this is the permanent link to that particular slide. For instance, the following URL links to the slide 32 of a 80-page presentation.

The hash or the anchor tag appended to the document URL does the magic.
