Chapter 8. Creating Tables of Contents a... > Creating a Table of Contents

Creating a Table of Contents

Now that you have some background information about tables of contents, get started by creating a table of contents for the first time. In this section, you go through the steps to determine what’s included, how the information is structured, and how to format the look. In addition, you discover how to make changes at any time to existing tables of contents. Although these exercises address working with creating a table of contents based on one source document file, the process is almost exactly the same as working with a book file. The differences are included as sidenotes where appropriate.

Determining What’s Included

Before you start this step, it’s a good idea to get organized about the information that you plan to include in the table of contents. For example, you might want to include chapter headings and first- and second-level subheadings. Take a look inside the source document and make a note of the paragraph tags applied to the source information. After you know the paragraph tag names of the source information that you want to include in the table of contents, you can get started.
