|I stopped using Word several years ago as it was getting too expensive to buy and stay legal.|
That said... I saw a sale offer and bought the Office suite of Office 2010. (win7 64bit)
I am basically writing a biggish 200 page article and need to index the chapters like I do in Libreoffice. with a TOC
Nothing fancy, Just Heading 1 for the Section title and Heading 3 for each chapter in a Section.
I moved all the text into Word2010. I liked the way you can change fonts.
Then I came unstuck.
Choosing the automatic Table 1 or 2 I tried to add the headings which I had made heading1 or heading3 with the styles menu.
No entries appeared with the table update tag.
Then I had an Idea.
I imported fom Libreoffice, not only the text, but the TOC as well. This did the trick.
I now had 150 pages of text with the 17 chapter headings listed in the Contents table.
What am I doing wrong in WORD ?, ...not being able to generate the TOC directly without falling back on the Libre office work-around.!!!
I would really appreciate someone explaining what I must be doing wrong.
PS with the imported TOC, I can add headings in the text.
When I update the TOC the added heading is listed with page number.
