How do I direct my hyperlinks to display the top of the page consistently?

I'm working on a 36-paged document for a client that hyperlinks several times to various pages of claims/references/annotations formatted in long tables sectioned out in chapters. Ideally, I'd like every hyperlink to display the top of the page upon click/directing to page, even if the content that the hyperlink is directing to is lower down on the page. Is there a way to do this? I tried text anchors, but I'm not quite certain I even fully understand/grasp how to properly text anchor; when I set the text anchor to the first words that appear on every page, it doesn't seem to work.

What you're describing is the default behavior of the browser/reader. It can't be modified by a document creation process, or even (easily) by document tweaks. Most browsers put the link anchor at the top of the reading frame.

 

The only way to achieve what you want is to somehow embed the anchor (page or heading info) at the top of the page. That would have to be a wholly separate feature/process from the document content and default link structure.
