Bookmarks to take to another sheet

In addition to recreate your selections, can a bookmark take you to another sheet, as to where the bookmark was created?

If not, what alternative method can do this?

I just tested it in a random model and it should work fine.

i don't think it is possible, as the bookmarks only set your selection, one alternative is to add a button with two actions, the first one is to select the bookmark and the second one will take you to the sheet that you want.

Just thought I could do it with Bookmarks somehow.

Yes it can.

When you create a bookmark, check the "include layout state" checkbox. It will then take you to the active sheet and the activated object.

Thanks for your response Simen.  But unfortunately it doesn't.  Unless there's something else Im missing.

I've ticked the "Include Layout" checkbox, but it does not take me to the appropriate sheet.

Seems like it is not possible when creating a bookmark as a user in Accesspoint, but when you create a document bookmark from the desktop version it works as intended even in accesspoint.

I leave it to someone else to test in the IE-plugin.

Yes you're right Simen.  I've tried it again and it takes me to the sheet.  But I notice that it doesn't remember by objects' visibility/invisibility.  I have some buttons on the sheet which hides and shows different objects.  These dont get reselected by the Bookmark.
