It's HEADING not HEADER!!! I did the whole thing saying HEADER!! Arg!
And one step I skipped, when you get to the step where you open the table of contents window, pick a format, then SHAZAM click on it and all your previously selected headings turn into a Table of Contents.......BEFORE YOU SELECT A HEADINGS FORMAT YOU MUST SELECT A BLANK LINE IN THE WORD DOC WHERE YOU WANT THE TABLE OF CONTENTS. That's where it will go, just aim your cursor arrow at the spot you want the TOC, click on it, and then go select the TOC formatting style.
PS this is really useful if anyone wants to publish a non-fiction book. Those usually need a Table of Contents.
Below are the images I used in the above video if you want a longer look at them.
The word Easy Sweets is highlighted, then I clicked on Heading 1.
The words below it: ex. Connealy Crunch are highlighted then I click on Heading 2. That makes them indented from Heading 1.
PS Connealy Crunch is so delicious you will all want to come after me with pick forks and torches for addicting you to it!!!!! HAH! But you'll be too busy munching to light the torch! So I am SAFE!
Above is the finished Product
The table of Contents from Faster Than Fast Food! Isn't it CUTE???!!! Perfect and tidy...soooooo not like me life!
Each one of these words is CLICKABLE and will zip you to the recipe.
Now the steps.
First the top of a word document, note the yellow arrow.
Second Step....turn each thing you want to be in the table of contents by highlighting it, then clicking on Heading 1 or if it's a subsection pick heading 2.
Look again at my final table of contents. The sections and subsections. So since I made a cookbook I wanted general sections, like soups and sweets and main dishes, and I also wanted a subsection for each specific recipe. (I can feel the vibrations of how proud Ruthy is of me! It gives me the strength to go on!)
Page numbers appear, too.
Next step once all your headings 1 and headings 2 are chosen, click on REFERENCE
Then click on Table of Contents (look for the yellow arrows in my image)
The image below will appear.
Select the format you want and, I am sorry to say, I see NO DIFFERENCE between the two. Maybe the words TABLE OF CONTENTS in the second and only the word CONTENTS in the first? Okay. Is that it? Weird.
If anyone sees anything else, tell me.
And now I will list for you the FOUR BOOKS I had release last week.
Yes, I know, I should have probably timed my cookbook release more....ahem...strategically?
WHICH BOOK SHOULD I GIVE AWAY!!!
How about one of each? Four books to four different winners!
Faster than Fast Food is ebook only
The Tangled Ties that Bind is an ebook only and available in print in Hearts Entwined.
Mary "Not-A-Chef" Connealy favorites, using every shortcut in the books. (that has a double meaning! I just realized that! I should have used it on Amazon in the description--Ruthy? Can I change stuff after it's published?)
This is CONTEMPORARY COWBOYS! LETTING THEM USE A CELL PHONE WAS A THRILL BEYOND BELIEF!!!
