Part V: Mastering Special Features > Organizing Content with an Outline

Chapter 21. Organizing Content with an Outline

  • Create and work with an outline

    Learn how to create an outline and use the outline commands to promote and demote headings, and collapse and expand the levels visible in the outline.

  • Reorganize your document easily by using an outline

    You can easily reorganize an outline by selecting a heading and moving it, along with its subordinate headings and body text.

  • Use outline headings to create tables of contents

    The headings in an outline can be used to create a table of contents using the Insert Index and Tables command.

Many writers feel comfortable organizing their thoughts and even their schedules with outlines. If you're in that group of organized people, you are going to enjoy working with the Word 97 outlining feature. In Word 97, an outline is a special view of your document that consists of formatted headings and body text. Nine possible outline heading levels are available. Each heading level can have one level of body text. Assigning each heading level a different formatting style enables you and the reader to discern your document's organization quickly.
