Table of contents in Google Documents to quickly navigate to a section of your document

In this video, I show you how to add a table of contents to a Google Doc in two different ways.

 

One way is by changing the specified text to “headlines” and then inserting a Table of Contents, which automatically creates links to your headlines. The other way is by making your headlines into bookmarks and then inserting links to your bookmarks at the beginning of the document. The fact that you can create a table of contents on a Doc is one of the many benefits of using Google Docs and the fact that it is all on the internet. Once you watch this video, you’ll see how easy it is to add a table of contents to any Google Doc.

 

Table of contents in documents

A table of contents makes it easy for you, your collaborators, and viewers to quickly navigate to a section of your document. Each item in your table of contents links to the titled sections of your document that use the heading styles. Here's how to add one to your document:

  1. Go to the Format menu and select Paragraph styles to add headings to sections of your document. There are six different heading sizes to choose from.
  2. Place your cursor where you'd like to insert the table of contents.
  3. Go to the Insert menu, and select Table of contents.
  4. If you need to move the table of contents, select it as you would select text and either move it with your cursor or cut it and paste it.
  5. You can continue to add headings to your document or change current headings. However, if you'd like a change to become part of the table of contents, you need to click first the table and then the Refresh button. 

    Important: If you want to change the text of the table of contents, edit the headings in the document body rather than in the table of contents. Once you update the table of contents by clicking the Refresh button, any manual edits you made in the table of contents will be cleared.

    I have been on the internet lately, looking for something to read and that is how I came across your site and saw this article of yours. So, I decided to see what it says and I find out that it is so amazing. You really did a great work in on your site and the articles you posted on it. You really take your time in writing this article and they are clearly detailed. Once again, you are good at article writing and I will be coming back to view more article updates on your site.
