Creating a Table of Contents

With a structured use of paragraph tags, building a table of contents is a quick and easy task.

To select paragraphs to be included in the table of contents: Choose Text Styles from the Define submenu in the Edit menu to display the Define Style dialog box. Choose Paragraph from the Type pop-up menu. Choose the paragraph style tag used for chapter headings in the Styles list box. Click Edit. The Paragraph Style dialog box will appear. Select Include in TOC. Click OK. Click Done to close the Define Style dialog box. Note: You may also edit the paragraph style by holding down the shift key while choosing the paragraph style from the Paragraph Styles submenu in the Type menu, or by holding down the shift key while choosing the paragraph style from the Styles palette, or by choosing Edit from the mini-menu in the Styles palette when the paragraph style is selected in the Styles Palette.

To create a table of contents: Select the Text tool from the Toolbox and place the insertion point where the table of contents will be inserted. Choose Table of Contents from the Generate submenu from the Edit menu to display the Generate Table of Contents dialog box. Enter a title for the table of contents in the Title text box. Choose a paragraph style tag for the title from the Title pop-up menu or enter it in the text box in the Paragraph Styles group. Enter the paragraph styles prefix to use for the table of contents elements in the Prefix text box. Select Insert to generate and insert the table of contents at the current text cursor position. Click OK to save the settings without inserting the table of contents.

The paragraphs of the table of contents will be identical to the corresponding paragraphs in the document tagged with a paragraph style tag set to Include in TOC, except the paragraph style tag will be prefixed with the text entered in the Prefix text box from the Paragraph Styles group from the Generate Table of Contents dialog box. Each level of the table of contents may then be custimized by editing the appropriatly named paragraph style tag.
