Customizing a table of contents
To insert a customized table of contents into your document:
Place the cursor where you want to insert the table of contents.
From the main menu, choose Insert > Indexes and Tables > Indexes and Tables. The Insert Index/Table dialog box opens.
The Insert Index/Table dialog box (Figure 308) has five pages. Any or all of them can be used when creating or editing a table of contents:
Use the Index/Table page to set the attributes of the table of contents.
Use the Entries and Styles pages to format the entries in the table of contents.
Use the Columns page to put the table of contents into more than one column.
Use the Background page to add color or a graphic to the background of the table of contents.
The preview box, located on the left-hand side of each tab, shows as you work how the table of contents will look. (If you do not see the preview box, select the Previewcheckbox in the lower right-hand corner of the dialog box.)
After making all your changes, click OK to save the table of contents so it appears in your document.
