Word: Table of Contents articles revisited

September 14, 2011

I get a LOT of searches on this blog for articles on creating Tables of Contents (TOC) in Word, and fixing them when things go wrong. So I thought it might be useful to have a single post that links to all those articles in the one place.

  1. Wow! I am so glad I stumbled on this site — you information is fantastic! Do you know how, in a lettered list (a., b., c., etc), I can bold the just the letter b. and the text line that follows? It seems the letters are all married and I can’t bold one without the others. This is for a guide that has the answers to a classroom multiple choice activity, so every question will have a different letter/line in bold. Any ideas?

    Go to the second bullet item in the ‘Changing the styles’ section at the end of this blog post of mine: https://cybertext.wordpress.com/2010/06/22/word-2007-taming-multilevel-list-numbering/. That should help. If you still having trouble, follow steps 1 to 6 in the ‘Step 1’ section of that blog post.
