Word builds your Table of Contents by searching for headings with specified styles. It then sorts headings according to their heading level, references their page numbers, and then displays Table of Contents within your document.
Once you create your Table of Contents, your document can be easily navigated by clicking on any page number within your Table of Contents. This will enable your readers to instantly jump to corresponding chapter headings within your document.
Your introduction should follow your Table of Contents and might contain an overview of your ebook's subject matter or whatever you'd like. Your introduction will be a prelude to your chapters.
The next part of your ebook will contain your chapters. Your chapter titles should be displayed in a larger, bold font. Each new chapter should start at top of a new page.
There are a number of ways you can spice up your ebook's appearance and give it a professional look and feel. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
Inserting Page Numbers
You can insert page numbers simply by clicking on "Insert" then "Page Numbers." You will be presented with several formatting options for positioning, alignment and styles. If you would like to add additional text with your page numbers, you can use "Header and Footer" option.
Headers and Footers
Headers and Footers can be used to insert specific information at top and/or on bottom of each of your pages. To insert these fields into your pages, click on "View" then on "Header and Footer." A header and footer area will appear at top and bottom of each page. You can type in your text and/or use toolbar to insert your information into your pages. You only have to insert information into "Header and Footer" area of your first page and it will be displayed on every page.
Borders can be used to enhance your ebook's appearance. To add a border to each of your pages, click on "Format" then on "Borders and Shading." Click on "Page Border" tab and select your border style and color.
