  2. Right-click anywhere on the help for that topic, and choose Copy Topic ID <idno>, as shown in Figure 1.

  6. In the large Help and How-to text box, paste the Help Topic ID that you copied in Step 2, and click the Search button. For this example, we pasted "HA10081967" without the quotes since we wanted the URL to the topic that discusses how you can make changes to a handout master.
  7. The search results will show you the page you want to share (see Figure 3).
  8. Resultant Page
