04 Aug Insert a table of contents in Google Docs
For long documents, it is much easier to view your file using a table of contents, providing links to all the sectioned areas.
To insert your table of contents in a Google Doc, firstly make sure all your sections have sub-headers, so that Google knows how to navigate round your document. Then, make sure your cursor is in the position you want the table of contents to appear. Next up, head to ‘Insert’ and click ‘Table of contents’.
Google will insert the table of contents based on your content sub-headers, right where you want it. To edit, click inside the table of contents area, and the table will be selected with a box. Right click, and you can instruct the table to update, based on changes, or you can delete the table.
