Adding a table of contents to a WordPerfect® 12 document

In a few simple steps, you can add a table of contents to your WordPerfect® 12 documents. You can use a table of contents to generate an outline of a business report or to provide an overview of a document's structure by listing its headings

Before generating a table of contents, you must insert a page for it in the document.

To insert a new page

  1. Click in the document where you want to insert the table of contents.
  2. Click Insert, New page.

Once you insert the new page, the next step is to define the number of levels of indentation and the look of the table of contents.

This table of contents has three levels:

If you applied default heading styles to your document, each heading level is automatically marked with a level for the table of contents. Therefore, you can easily generate a table of contents based on the heading text. Alternatively, if you didn’t use default heading styles, you can scroll through the document and mark each of the headings that you want to display in the table of contents.

To mark entries for a table of contents if your document does not contain default heading styles

  1. Click Tools, Reference, Table of contents.
  2. Place your cursor at the beginning of a title that you want to display in the table of contents.
  3. Choose from levels Mark 1 through Mark 5. The level you choose depends on the levels you defined for the table of contents. Each mark corresponds to a level of indentation.
  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 for each title that you want to display in the table of contents.

    You can press Alt + F3 to view the mark codes for the table of contents.

    To define a table of contents for a document

    1. Place the cursor at the top of the new page you created.
    2. Click Tools, Reference, Table of contents.
    3. Click Define.
    4. In the Number of levels box, type the number of levels of indentation that you want to include in your table of contents.
    5. For each level, choose a number position from the Position list box.
      If you want to wrap long entries in a table of contents, enable the Display last level in wrapped format check box.
    6. Click Styles.
    7. From the Level list, choose the level to which you want to apply a style.
    8. From the Styles list, choose the predefined style that you want to apply to the level.
      If you want to create your own table of contents style, click Create.
    9. Click OK to close the Table of contents styles dialog box.
    10. Click OK to close the Define table of contents dialog box.
      • The text << Table of Contents will generate here />> should display on the new page that you inserted in the document.

      Once you’ve defined how and where the table of contents will display, you are ready to generate the table of contents. When you generate a table of contents, WordPerfect searches the document for the table of contents entry markers. This information is inserted on the table of contents page in the document. You need to regenerate the table of contents every time you want to update the information.

    To generate a table of contents

    1. Click Tools, Reference, Table of contents.
      If you want to ensure that a table of contents is generated before you save or print a document, enable the Auto generate check box. A warning displays every time you save or print a document if you have not generated the table of contents since last saving or printing.
    2. Click Generate.
    3. In the Generate dialog box, enable any of the following check boxes:
      • Save subdocuments – saves changes to subdocuments
      • Build hyperlinks – adds hyperlinks from the entries to related sections in the document
