As in Word to make the content?
Text editor Microsoft word has many useful functions, one of which is the creation of automatic content.
This largely simplifies the work of users, because when you create content you must not only specify the sections of the document, but to indicate the numbering of the pages containing one or the other head. By the way, the people have very often problems.
I also want to note that this content be updated very simply (in case you made any changes to the pages in the document or in the title of the chapters).
Another important advantage is that the automatic placement will make it perfectly straight. No progress, paragraphs, or extra spaces, etc. the Contents will look like, as required by the rules of documentation.
It is especially useful to make the content automatically for those users who are using word to create the abstract, term paper, the diploma, etc.
Now let’s look at the process of creating an automatic table of contents.
How to make contents in Word 2007?
Suppose you have a text document ready for printing, but also without content. It contains chapters that should be in the table of contents. Accordingly, we have a structure (as an example).
Each Chapter displayed in the picture above, has its own semantic and structural «level». That is «Introduction», «Chapter 1 and Chapter 2» are in the hierarchy of the content of the highest step. Accordingly, it is necessary to assign a style called «Heading 1».
To do this, in the Home tab find the section «Styles» in which there are various chapters. To be assigned you must select the text and click on the relevant required label.
A similar conduct with all the other chapters. In the end, we obtain the following:
Further to the heads of the second level, and this «Chapter 1.1», «Chapter 2.2,» etc., you must apply the style «Title 2».
And remains a point of future content, which is called «Chapter 2.2.1». It is necessary to apply the style «Header 3» as the item of contents in a hierarchy of lower rank than the «Chapter 2» and «Chapter 2.2».
After you will do all this, you should get the following result:
Naturally, in your case between the heads will be text, but I deliberately made this example this way to illustrate the cyclic structure.
Now all we have to automatically turn into content. This is done as follows:
- Go to the «Links» and find the button «table of contents» (it is the first in the list, that is in the upper left edge of the toolbar).
- After clicking on this button drop-down list appears with options for the design of future content, automatic of which are first and second. Choose one of them which you like the most.
The result here is beautiful table of contents that was created automatically.
If for some reason you made changes to the pages or the titles of the chapters, then after editing the document, click «Update table«and in the dialog that appears, select «update the entire«.
If you need to add or remove in the finished table of contents, the page numbers, then again click on the button «table of contents» to open the list, click on the button «contents…«. Further dialog box opens in which you need to remove the check mark from the item «Show page numbers«.
