      Description

      In a large menu, down in some long page, the navigation menu is the only way out without lots of scrolling. But, the nav menu only provides links to other resources, not the Topic blocks themselves.

      Note the attached image. The mouse pointer is where I want to go. That object is the heading of a Topic Block. It should be active and clicking on it should take me to the Topic Outline with that block opened and at the top of page.

      Toward the top of the nav menu in the attached image, you can see that the Participants and the Reports outline headings work in this way.

      Note, this "complaint" came directly from a user who was getting lost as they only use the nav menu, and were not finding their way back to the topic menu.
