I am creating a file with lots of topics and sections and I need a way to expeditiously navigate this. On the order/magnitude of a phone book/dictionary/encyclopedia.
I was thinking that a scrolling object such as a table(s) or list(s) but I can find nothing about adding scrolling functionality to these items.
What's your output going to be? Any HTML output is going to scroll automatically in your browser.
I have edited the title of your post to show 2020.
It sounds like you are going to create a single topic with a table showing various words and the information about them that you want.
If that is the case, then create your table with as many rows as you require and generate the topic. It will automatically have scroll bars.
If there's more to it, then let us know what.
