Creating a table of contents

Creating a table of contents

For each document you can create a table of contents. Here you can specify an entry for each single page. The reader can open up the table of contents of the document via the Content button. By clicking on an entry in the table of contents the document flips to the corresponding page. Thus, you allow the reader an easy navigation and a good topic overview.

Click on table of contents in the context menu.

In the order that a page in the table of contents is displayed, you only need to specify a title for the page in the list. Just click on the line of the page and enter the title. You can also, independently of the title, leave a brief description for each page.

Finally, you can determine how far an entry is to be indented to the right in the display of the table of contents. Thus, you can visually divide the table of contents. There are 4 levels of indentation possible. At level 1, the entry is not indented. Level 4 sets the highest level of indentation. To change a level, click in the column indentation for that side of the existing entry, and select the desired level from the menu.

Once you save the contents, you can check it in the preview.

The short description of a page is displayed in the document when you move the mouse over an entry in the table of contents or when you move the mouse over a page in the page overview of the document.

Please note the following: When you create or modify a table of contents for an already published document, you have to publish it again after saving, so that it is updated for your readers, not just in the preview.

In addition, the contents in the settings must be activated (default: ON).
