How to Create a Table of Contents
By following a few simple steps, you can create a TofC that will automatically generate the section headings, sub headings, etc. and page numbers. No more going through every page of your document ensuring page numbers have not changed after a revision.
You can to this as you type or after you have typed your entire document. There are basically 3 simple steps. The first step involves "marking" the heading for the TofC. You can have up to 5 levels of headings and sub headings and there are several numbering styles you can choose or define your own.
To mark text for a table of contents:
Click Tools, Reference, Table of Contents
The next step after every heading is marked is to define the TofC.
Position your cursor where you want the TofC to be in your document (usually after the title page and before the text).
If your TofC menu bar has been closed, click Tools, Reference, Table of Contents, Define
Once everything has been marked and the format for your TofC is complete you are now ready to automatically generate your TofC.
If your TofC menu bar has been closed, click Tools, Reference, Table of Contents, Generate
And viola! Your TofC is created before your eyes with the correct page numbers! Easy wasn't it. Now if you have font size changes in the heading simply block the entire TofC and click on the font size you choose (usually the same is the text in the document).
If your table of contents has more than one level and you want the last level indented evenly, click Display, Last Level in Wrapped format (found at the bottom of the define dialogue box).
If you are at the beginning of the document and want the table of contents generated on a separate page, remember to press Ctrl+Enter to create a page break, then click on the new first page.
Using the comment is like sticking a post-it to your document. I find it useful if I'm in the midst of my story and I don't want to stop to find or check a fact. So I just create a comment reminding myself what I need to do. The comment can be converted to text and used in my document, or conversely text can be created to a comment. Comments can be view but do not print (unless you specify them to). So without further adieu, let's learn how to add a comment to our document.
Click where you want the comment.
Double-click the comment icon (the speech ballon)
Highlight selected the text to convert (to highlight click at beginning and drag mouse or hit F8 and use cursor keys
Position the mouse just past the comment code in or icon
Position mouse immediately after the comment
