This section shows you how to:

Editing a table of contents

To edit an existing table of contents:

  1. Click anywhere in the table of contents and then right-click.
  2. Image:Tip.png If you cannot click in the table of contents, it is probably because it is protected. To disable this protection, choose Tools > Options > OpenOffice.org Writer > Formatting Aids, and then select Enable in the Cursor in protected areas section. If you wish to edit the table of contents without enabling the cursor, you can access it from the Navigator.
  3. From the pop-up menu, choose Edit Index/Table. The Insert Index/Table dialog box opens and you can edit and save the table as described in the previous section.

You can also access the Index/Table dialog box from the Navigator.

  1. Open the Navigator (press F5).
  2. Click the + sign next to Indexes.
  3. Right-click on the desired index.
  4. Select Index > Edit.
Access an index from the Navigator.

  1. Click anywhere in the table of contents and then right-click.
  2. From the pop-up menu, choose Update Index/Table. Writer updates the table of contents to reflect the changes in the document.

  1. Click anywhere in the table of contents and then right-click.
  2. From the pop-up menu, choose Delete Index/Table. Writer deletes the table of contents.
Image:documentation_note.png Writer will not prompt you to confirm the delete! Use caution when deleting a table of contents.

You can also delete the index from the Navigator by selecting Index > Delete from the menu.
