MyOffice Text allows you to add a table of contents that is formed from the existing headings of the document. A heading is a fragment of text where the built-in styles for Heading 1–Heading 5 or custom styles are applied.
By default, the table of contents includes the headings with Heading 1, Heading 2, and Heading 3 built-in styles applied. You can change which headings and heading levels should be included in the table of contents at any time.
The table of contents is updated automatically and reflects both changes in the headings and their respective page numbers.
Make sure to apply heading styles to all document headings before creating the table of contents. For example, if your document includes chapters, sections, and subsections, apply the Heading 1 style to chapter headings, the Heading 2 style to section headings, and the Heading 3 style to subsection headings.
To apply a heading style:
1.Select the text or place the cursor in the text you want to use as a heading.
2.On the Toolbar, select the Styles section and select a heading style. For example, Heading 1.
Once the styles are applied, you can create the table of contents.
1.Put the cursor before the place where you want to insert the table of contents.
2.Insert the table of contents in one of the following ways:
•In the Command menu, click Insert > Table of Contents.
•On the Toolbar, select the Insert section and click . In the opened insert pane, click Table of Contents.
By default, the table of contents is always separated from the rest of the document by a page break. You can remove it if needed.
You need to enter the name of the table of contents manually.
You may perform the following actions to edit the table of contents:
•Add or remove levels of the table of contents.

Add a new level of the table of contents
The table of contents can have up to 9 heading levels. By default, it consists of three levels. The first level of the table of contents comprises the headings with the Heading 1 style applied. Heading 2 is the second level. Heading 3 is the third level.
The table of contents typically includes no more than five heading levels. If you add a fourth and fifth level of the table of contents, they will automatically have predefined styles of Heading 4 and Heading 5, respectively.
If you want to add more than five levels of headings to the table of сontents, create custom styles and apply them to the desired headings. Then add the table of contents levels that will be created from these headings.

2.Select the headings style you want to apply to this level of the table of contents from the drop-down list or leave the style selected by default.
