In addition to the Page Number field on the Status bar (described in Status bar), Writer provides other ways to move quickly through a document and find specific items by using the many features of the Navigator, the Navigation toolbar, and related icons.

To open the Navigator, click its icon Image:Nav-icon.png on the Standard toolbar, or press F5, or choose Edit > Navigator on the menu bar. You can dock the Navigator to either side of the main Writer window or leave it floating (see Docking/floating windows and toolbars).

The Navigator displays lists of all the headings, tables, text frames, graphics, bookmarks, and other objects contained in a document.

To hide the list of categories and show only the icons at the top, click the List Box On/Off icon Image:listbox-icon.png. Click this icon again to show the list. Click the + sign by any of the lists to display the contents of the list.
