Navigation Properties (Pages Only)
Effective online documentation requires extra navigation features over print documentation. In addition, online output follows different rules regarding the number of page breaks and includes unique page layouts for specific information. From Style Designer, you can specify navigation details for content pages in Page Styles properties.
If you include navigation buttons in your online output, ePublisher lets you specify several options for where the navigation features display. Keep in mind that not all output formats support navigation links.
You can form a linked path to show users the location of the current topic in your online content. This clickable path, called breadcrumbs, steps you through the topics that are responsible for getting you to the topic being viewed. Breadcrumbs can display at the top of the page, at the bottom of the page, or both. ePublisher sets the breadcrumb trail to the top of the output page by default.

Then, set the Navigation Properties from the Properties tab in Page Styles.
Bottom (Navigation Alignment)
Specifies how to align the bottom navigation browse buttons in your online output, such as Left, Center or Right.
