Updating table of contents in microsoft word
If you choose instead to create a manual table of contents, Word will add dummy text to the table instead of using your headings, you'll have to manually type in each entry, and Word won't be able to update the table of contents for you--not very much fun. Once you've chosen one of the automatic tables of contents or the custom option, Word will create the table of contents for you.
Some screenshots may come from a previous version of Word, but remain relevant.
The first entry that has incorrect formatting is TOC 2 (the second-level entries).
Click on that (click #1 above) to see the current settings in the Preview window, then click on Modify (click #2).
Here's where we can fix everything that's wrong with the second-level TOC entries: we can change the font from Arial to Times New Roman with the drop-down in the center, and we can fix the paragraph issues (the right indentation and the amount of vertical space before and after) by clicking on the Format button at the bottom and choosing "Paragraph" from the menu.
That will take us to the familiar Format Paragraph dialog box: Notice how the Print Preview window (circled in red) has changed from the first time we saw it.
