Using the Entries page
Use the Entries page to define and format the entries in the TOC. Each outline level can be styled independently from the other levels by adding and deleting elements.
Click on a number in the Level column to select the outline level whose elements you want to format. This will display the Structure line which contains the elements included in the entries for that level. The available elements are displayed just below the structure line and are grayed out if already included:
- The E# button represents the “chapter number”, which means the heading number, not just for chapters but also for other levels of headings.
- The E button represents the chapter (or sub-chapter) text.
- The T button represents a tab stop.
- The # button represents the page number.
- The LS button represents the start of a hyperlink. (This button does not appear on the default Structure line.)
- The LE button represents the end of a hyperlink. (This button does not appear on the default Structure line.)
Each white field on the Structure line represents a blank space. You can add custom text if you desire.
To add an element to the Structure line:
- Click in the white field where you want to insert the element.
- Click one of the five buttons just below the Structure line. (For example, to add a tab, click the Tab stop button.) A button representing the new element appears on the Structure line.
- To add custom text, such as the word Chapter, type the text in the white field.
To change an element in the Structure line, click the button representing that element and then click the element that you want to substitute in the row of buttons just below the Structure line. For example, to change a chapter number to a tab stop, click the E# button on the Structure line (it shows then as being pressed) and then click the Tab stop button in the row of available elements.
Applying changes to all outline levels
To apply the displayed structure and formatting to all outline levels, click the All button.
To delete an element from the Structure line, click the button representing that element and then press the Delete key on your keyboard. For example, to delete a tab stop, click the T button and then press the Delete key.
To change the default Structure line so that the chapter number and the entry text form a hyperlink, follow these steps:
- On the Structure line, place the cursor in the white field to the left of the E# button.
- Click the Hyperlink button. An LS button, representing the start of the hyperlink, appears on the Structure line.
- On the Structure line, place the cursor in the white field to the right of the E button.
- Click the Hyperlink button again. An LE button, representing the end of the hyperlink, appears on the Structure line.
The figure below represents the completion of the above steps. The number and the text of the entries on that level will now be hyperlinks.
Applying character styles
You might want an element to be a bit different from the rest of the line. For example, you might want the page number to be bold. To apply a character style to an element:
- Be sure you have defined a suitable character style.
- On the Structure line, click the button representing the element to which you want to apply a style.
- From the Character Style drop-down list, select the desired style.
To view or edit the attributes of a character style, select the style from the Character Style drop-down list and then click the Edit button.
Tab position relative to Paragraph Style indent
When this option is selected, entries are indented according to the settings of their individual formats. Where a paragraph style specifies an indent on the left, tab stops are relative to this indent. If this option is not selected, tab stops are relative to the left margin position.
