Making automatic table of contents in essays or diss essays seems simple but not with some of you who are not familiar with Word. Some of your difficulties are.
- Not placing multiple headings causes the table of contents to be incomplete or the headings to be leveled together.
- How do I create an automatic table of contents on a white paper and content starting from page 1? Hieu agrees it’s hard, but it’s not going to get in there.
- Heading and bad format table of contents, hard to see.
- Don’t update page numbers and headlines again when you change content.
Your difficulties are the same, now let’s get to work.
Install heading in word
To use heading in word effectively as well as save the effort of sitting and editing formats, in the first place you need to create headings with multiple levels (usually from 1 to 6). Say it’s created, but it’s actually available and it just doesn’t show you.
Create a heading in word
At the Word interface on the home tab you tap the Style call button or click the Alt Ctrl Shift S key combination as shown to show the Style table.
You add to the Show preview button to see how your headings are formatted. To remove hints of socks still not relevant you to Options remove all the traces. Select New docmuents based on this template to save forever (otherwise only save in the file you’re composing).
Now you’ll see that it’s less of a hint. But there are still things that show up and lack the ones you need like heading 3 to 6. You need to adjust the heading you need to show/hide as well as hide the ones you don’t need like the one below. Make sure to add new docmuents based on this template.
Ok, surely you’re more comfortable looking at your Style bar now, right? ^_^ it’s a bit ugly, it’s not as beautiful as Hieu’s. You have to do the next step is format them.
Format heading in word
Click the button next to heading and select Modify to show the format table for heading.
You need to know that these headings don’t follow the font format, text size, text color, and Paragraph (page) as you pre-formatted the paragraph body.
It’s best to re-format them just like the stye of a normal paragraph, don’t italic italics at all. The colors you set as you like to be easy to manage when you’re using them, and after you’re done, just go to Ctrl A (select them all) and choose black.
After formatting (1) you go to Format Paragraph as shown below.
The Paragraph table that appears you’ll see is only different from the paragraph format in the Spacing section. You should put Line spacing on as your paragraph formats. Before and After, you consider 0 to 2.
To be beautiful, I recommend the Paragraph of the heading you should format exactly the same. Simple is the best that :))
One thing like that repeats all headings and do everything you can to remember to put new docmuents based on this template. I don’t hear that toad.
To check that it has been saved forever, you press Ctrl N (open the new file) to see if it is saved so, which one has not you turned off the newly opened file and re-entered the place that has not been saved to New docmuents based on this template.
Ok fine! Now we make the rest of the table of contents automatic.
Create an automatic table of contents in Word
Creating a table of contents in word with the image below will help you :)) You need to follow the order of steps below.
Add headings to headings
For easy heading management you should turn on Navigation by Ctrl F (find) as pictured.
In the Navigation bar you select the Heading tab to see how they show organized headings.
For example, chapter 1 is the highest level I selected it as heading 1 (so that the mouse is in that line and click heading 1). Immediately on the Heading tab of the Navigation bar appears Chapter 1 as shown below. Other headings do the same and observe the Heading tab to see if they’re in the right place.
To delete the heading, click Normal. When it’s all over, remember Ctrl A and adjust the text color to black for the less flashy heading!!
After attaching all headings to the headings you are about to have a beautiful table of contents, read on the following steps.
Wrap a white paper in Word
Usually the content will start from page 1. And you have trouble inserting a table of contents that starts on another digital page while the table of contents or other openings it eats from page 1 :))
Place your mouse where you want to break, and then go through the Layout tab and select “Next Page”, why?
- Select Page: breaks the pages in 1 Section, the number of pages in a section is consecutive.
- Select Next Page: breaks the page to a new Section, which can edit the page numbers of 2 different sections. The goal is to get the content section with the page starting at 1. The beginning of the essay will not have a page number or other page number.
Now you add the page to the Footer by simply make sure everyone knows:v via the Insert tab and select the Footer as shown below.
Then you see that the page number in the body and the part you break it still link together, right? Let’s take the bottom step so they can trade each other’s hands :))
By the middle of 2 Pages of 2 Section, you double-click the Footer of the page to appear edit, at which point you see Footer Section 1 and Header Section 2 appear.
You click one on the Header of the lower page and then click on the Footer of the page on one, then click the Link to Previos button (let go of each other).
When it still links the background the button will be dark, it returns to the light color is ok.
Now you need to make the first page of content starting from number 1. Double-click the Footer of section of the essay content. In the Insert tab click page number select Format Page Numbers.
Select Sart at 1 as shown below, ok. As for the rest of Section’s pages, you can just double-click on its Footer and delete it.
That’s the end of the page, it’s a little confusing but it’s just ^_^
Insert a table of contents in Word
To have your cursor in say you want to insert a table of contents, then click the References tab to click table of contents.
It’s important here that you don’t choose which templates it has to have available because it’s very limited. Select Custom Table of Contents as shown below to make the table of contents more beautiful.
The Table of Contents appears, where you only care about the smallest level of heading in your essay. For example, the smallest level Hieu uses is 6, Hieu fills out 6 at Show levels and clicks Ok.
And here’s the result. Equal levels will stand equally positioned. The lower the level, the more mature it is to be observed.
If you edit the title or content you’ve taken to another page. You need to update the table of contents by going to the References tab to click update the table of contents.
- Choose Update page numbers only if you only update page numbers.
- Select Uptate entire table if you want to update both page numbers and title names.
