I noticed when I bookmarked my TOC, they were put in alphabetically order, which is fine. Should the toc in the bookmark section be at the bottom or in between. This is how it looks:
May question is should the toc be at the bottom or is this because my toc is in alphabetically order? Also, when I click on the links in my toc they are not navigating down to the section of the book, can someone please help me get this fixed so the bookmark and hyperlinks in my Word document are working and linking to the section of the toc title properly?
I don't understand the question, and I doubt that anyone else does (if they had, they would have answered by now!). What you show is not like any TOC I have ever seen. And are you bookmarking the chapters or the TOC itself?
I am bookmarking the chapters using the bookmark tab and I am using the hyperlink from the Insert tab. My TOC is navigating down to the section of the book where a reader can jump to and read. How do I connect the TOC to each section/subject matter?
The TOC will only go where you tell it to go. If you want the readers to be able to jump to certain sections within chapters, you need to set those up as subheading of your chapters with their own bookmarks and hyperlinks. Sort of like this"
A. Getting Started
B. Working the Corners
C. The Finish Line
A. Cutting the Slack
B. Finding a Niche
Now, of course, I just made up these titles, but.... when you create your TOC, use simple names to bookmark the chapters, such as C01, C02, etc, and perhaps C01A , C01B, etc for the subheadings. Bookmark and hyperlink the subheadings just as you would the chapters.
Just a suggestion, of course.
Clark, since I am looking for any way to get out of actually working on my next book right now, if you wanted to email me your manuscript with the TOC you've created, I'd be happy to take a look at it and see if I can figure out what the problem is.
Okay Sharon what is your email address? Should I copy and paste just this section and send to you? I have both the hyperlink and bookmark sections filled with each title. The navigation for some reason is not following correctly.
My wireless mouse (the fifth one, by the way) has just taken one too many tumbles to the floor. It now refuses to work.
So I am having to use the diddle pad on my laptop. This is very difficult to do and eat fried chicken at the same time.
Anyway, here is my canned recipe for a Word TOC using bookmarks and hyperlinks: Creating a table of contents on microsoft word
It depends on what type of computer you have....
PC it is very easy -- Mac's not so much!
1. on each chapter start on a new page -- the easy way is to put a page break right after the last punctuation mark of the previous chapter,
2. In the upper left hand "Corner" of the new page place a bookmark...
chapter 1 should be ch01
chapter 2 should be ch02
I will then move down a line and start my heading stuff.
To build your table of contents create a new page (bookmarked toc) and make a list of chapters
You can either call it Chapter 1, or any thing you wish
when you have your list, go back and highlight the whole entry and right click it and select hyperlink -- the first time you do this you have to select "Within the Document" after that word will remember.
for Chapter 1 you hyperlink to ch01
for chapter 2 You hyperlink to ch02.... etc
if you bookmark ch01, ch02.... ch10 ch11 etc, the bookmarks will line up nicely in the list.
Boom you are done!
the mac version is similar, but there are glitches
