Watch the video screencast above or follow the written tutorial instructions below for more detail on how to make α table of contents in Word.
Creating Your Table of Contents in Word
There are α few ways of creating α table of contents in Word, but only two that you’llever use
Create them automatically from built-in stylesCreate them from your custom styles
Create them automatically from built-in stylesCreate them from your custom styles
These methods work mostly the same in Windows and Mac versions of Microsoft Word.
Using MS Word built-in styles is the fastest and most commontechnique, and using custom styles takes only α little more work. Sometimes,you’ll want to use both techniques in the same document. Once you have α table of contents (TOC) ina document, you can format it with its own styles. You don’t want to format theTOC like regular text, because the formatting can easily get wiped out.
How the Textbook is Organized
Before doing anything to the document, let’s see how it’sorganized. Page 1 is the title, page 2 is blank and will hold the table of contents, page 3is the preface, and after that comes the text. As you scroll down, notice that headingsand subheadings are formatted.
The textbook as level 1, 2 and 3 headings.
The best way to see the structure of the document is withthe Navigation Pane. (In some versions of Word for Mac, it may be called the Document Map Pane.)
In Windows, go to the Viewtab, then click the test box to enable the Navigation Pane.
The Word Navigation Pane is α great way of looking through α document.
On the Mac, click the Sidebar option to show the drop-down thực đơn. Click the arrow next to the option and click Navigation. (On older versions of the Mac software, the option is called Document Map Pane.)
Sidebar > Navigation to navigate through α document.
On the Mac, useto navigate through α document.
On your Mac or PC, go back to the Hometab if you’re not already there. Keep your eye on the Styles box on the ribbon,and click the items in the pane to navigate through the book.
Notice that theitems with whole numbers – like 2.Understanding the Physical Universe – are formatted as Heading 1, and itemswith decimals – like 2.1 Reality and PureThought – are formatted as Heading 2. There are also α few decimal items –like 4.5 Space Travel – that areformatted as Heading 3.
Tip: whencreating α document, the shortcuts for applying the Heading 1, 2 and 3 stylesare Ctrl-Alt-1, Ctrl-Alt-2, and Ctrl-Alt-3(and Command-Opt-1, Command-Opt -2, and Command-Opt-3 on the Mac).
Generating α Table of Contents Using Built-In Header Styles in Word
Word can now turn those Heading styles into table of contentsentries. Click at the top of page 2. (Tip: in Windows, press Ctrl-₲,type 2, then press Enter. On the Mac, press Command-Opt-₲, type 2, then press Return.)
In Windows, go to the Referencestab on the ribbon, click the Table ofContents button on the left, then choose one of the two built-in tablesfrom the list. Note that the thumbnails show that Headings 1, 2 and 3 will beincluded.
It’s almost the same on the Mac. Go to the Insert thực đơn, choose Index and Tables, then pick one of theformats on the left and click OK.This dialog box also shows that Headings 1-3 will be included.
You can insert α table of contents in Word just by clicking one of the samples. (Example shown is on Windows.)
As soon as you choose one, the table of contents gets inserted starting onpage 2, and Word automatically inserts α couple of more pages, so it all fits. In Windows, you can Ctrl-click one of the items, and it will hyperlink to the item in the document.
𝓐 table of contents is α field that you can update in MS Word. In Windows, fields have α gray background.
This works great, but there’s one problem. Before theIntroduction, there is α Preface thatshould be included in the table of contents. And just before Appendix A1 is the heading forthe Appendix, and that should also beincluded. But they weren’t, because they’re both formatted with α custom stylecalled Large heading, and customstyles don’t get included in the default table of contents. The second method of creating table of contents in Word will fix that.
Creating α Table of Contents From Custom Styles in Word
Word can include any styles in α table of contents. We justhave to tell it which ones to choose. And we can update the table, rather than havingto delete it and start over.
In Windows, go back to the References tab, click the Tableof Contents button, then near the bottom of the thực đơn, choose Custom Table of Contents. Click the Options button near the bottom of the dialog box to display the Table of Contents Options dialog box.
On the Mac, go to back to the Insert thực đơn and choose Indexand Tables. In the Table of Contents section, click the Options button.
On the Mac or PC the Table of Contents Options dialog box shows that the Heading 1 style will have TOC level 1,the Heading 2 style will have TOC level 2, and the Heading 3 style will haveTOC level 3.
Word uses its built-in styles to determine what goes into the table of contents. (Windows example)
Scroll down to the bottom of the list (on the Mac, you”ll use the down slider). Then, in the box for Large heading, type α 1 to make it level 1. Table of Content levels cancome from more than one style.
To include α custom style in the table of contents, assign α heading level to it.
Click OK in theTable of Contents Options dialog, then OK again in the Table of Contents dialog box. When Word displays α message asking if you want to replace thetable, choose Yes. The Preface and Appendix are now both included in the tableof contents.
Manually Updating the Table of Contents in Word
After adding custom styles to the TOC list, text formatted with those styles will appear in the table.
There are other times when you’ll want to update the tablemanually. This is handy when you change the text of one of the headings andwant the change reflected in the table of contents.
Scroll down to the page with the preface. At the top of the page replacePREFACE with FORWARD. Make sure it still uses the Large heading style.
Go back to the top of the table of contents and click in it. Note that ithas α gray background; that means it’s α field, and fields can usually beupdated.
Click the Update Tablebutton either on the TOC itself (that button doesn”t always appear) or on the References tab, and the first entry changes to FORWARD. (On the Mac, right-click the table and choose Update Field from the pop-up thực đơn. Choose the Update entire table option and click OK.)
Update Table buttons or by right-clicking on the table and selecting Update field. (Windows example shown here.)
Update the table of contents with either of thebuttons or by right-clicking on the table and selecting Update field. (Windows example shown here.)
Now that the table of contents displays the correct text, wecan apply nicer formatting though.
How to Modify Table of Contents Styles in Word
Each heading level of the table of contents has its ownstyle that’s automatically applied. All we have to do is change the formattingof the styles to change the table’s appearance, here”s how:
In Windows, in the References tab of the ribbon, click again on the Table of Contents button and choose Custom Table of Contents, near thebottom. In the Table of Contents dialog box, click Modify.On the Mac, click Insert > Indexand Tables. On the left side, choose From Template, thenclick Modify. Everything else worksthe same way as in Windows.In the Table of Contents dialog box, click Modify, and another dialog box appears,showing style names and formatting for the TOC heading levels. Select TOC1.Click the Modifybutton just below it, and the Style dialog box appears. (On the Mac, it”s called the Properties dialog box.)Style dialog box in Word to choose the heading levels you want to format.
In Windows, in thetab of the ribbon, click again on thebutton and choose, near thebottom. In thedialog box, click. On the left side, choose, thenclick. Everything else worksthe same way as in Windows.In thedialog box, click, and another dialog box appears,showing style names and formatting for the TOC heading levels. Select.Click thebutton just below it, and thedialog box appears. (On the Mac, it”s called thedialog box.)Use thedialog box in Word to choose the heading levels you want to format.
Format the style with Arial or Helvetica, 12 points, bold.Then click OK.
Modify the style of α TOC item is the same as modifying the style of any other text in Word.Repeat for the TOC 2 style, and set it to Arialor Helvetica, 12 points, normal.Repeat for the TOC 3 style, and set it to Arialor Helvetica, 11 points, normal.
The table of contents should now look like this:
After editing the table of contents styles and updating the table, you”ll see the new formatting.
When you have α long document, you don’t have to fearcreating α table of contents. Whether you’re using Windows or α Mac, you caninsert one in just α few clicks, then use the same dialog box to change theformatting.
As you learned in this table of contents tutorial, remember not to apply formatting directly to the table, because itcan get wiped out if you replace it. If you make any changes to the Word document itself, remember to click the top of the TOC and update it. Leave α comment below if you have any trouble making or tweaking your table of contents.
