Creating a Customized TOC
Figure 23-2 Word applies the selected TOC style to the heading styles in your document and
compiles the table of contents.
Depending on the style you selected in the Table Of Contents gallery, Word might
automatically add the title “Contents” or “Table of Contents.” It might also add right-aligned
page numbers and dot leaders (the dots spanning the space from the end of the
heading text to the page numbers). First-level headings are aligned with the left margin, while
second-level headings are indented one tab position to show their subordination.
When you click the table of contents, the table highlights and contextual tools appear
above the selected table. You learn more about these tools in the section titled “Editing and
Updating a TOC,” on page 712.
If you click the Table Of Contents tool on the References tab and don’t see any sample
styles in the gallery, click the Add Text tool then clear the Do Not Show Table Of
Contents option.
Creating a Customized TOC
If you want to create a table of contents that meets certain specifications, you can use the
Table Of Contents dialog box to enter the values you want to set. To start the process, on
the References tab, click the Table Of Contents tool in the Table Of Contents group. Next,
click Insert Table Of Contents at the bottom of the Table Of Contents gallery. The Table Of
Contents dialog box appears (see Figure 23-3). At the left side of the dialog box, you can
see how the default settings will be applied to your table of contents. As you can see, in
the Print Preview region, each level of heading is indented one tab position, tab leaders are
used, and numbers are aligned along the right margin. In the Web Preview region on the
right, no leaders are used, no page numbers are used, and each heading is actually a
hyperlink. When users click a link in the TOC, they will be taken to the corresponding section in
the Web document.
