Table of Contents

If you’ve used Styles/Headings properly, a Table of Contents (ToC) is a breeze! The ToC option is located in the References Tab. Be sure to use a ToC for longer documents. This helps everyone navigate your document with ease. When your document is converted to PDF, the ToC creates clickable links to content. (Links are available in Word documents as well, but users will need to use Control + click to follow links.)

Position your cursor in the place where you want your table of contents to be: References > Table of Contents > Choose which style of Automatic Table you prefer
