Updating table of contents in microsoft word
Before I dive into our solution, an obvious question that I think warrants some sort of explanation is why anyone would want to create TOC headings out of text boxes in the first place.
Answers are going to vary, but more often than not, this is for design purposes.
Notice that once the table of contents is in your document, it will turn gray if you click on it.
And since you published the document as pdf, the path for the Microsoft Word document is no longer valid. Our other Table of Contents items (not coming from text boxes) work well since they are relative links.
All we need to do is change a single line of code that is blocking our links from directing properly.1.
This seventh entry has the same formatting and options selected as the rest of the TOC. It has the same formatting style as all of the others but for some reason when the table is updated, it doesn't include this entry.
It's also a short enough title that if ellipses were added they would not spill onto the next line. I have tried reformatting both entries and recreating the TOC, but to no avail.
Do you have to deal with broken word table of contents links? Before you start pulling out your hair, remember: Our ancestors had to work in a time without backspace, CTRL-z or Google. ), we can solve this problem in a matter of minutes.
