Join Tony Harmer for an in-depth discussion in this video Generating a table of contents (TOC) on a PC and on a Mac, part of Creating EPUBs from a Word Document.
- There are two kinds of tables of contents…available to ePub files.…The first is called a navigational ToC.…And it's something that you can't do in Word.…It's generated at the time the actual ePub file is made.…And remember that here in Word,…we can only go as far as generating the HTML.…The navigational ToC, just so you know, is the thing…that typically appears on the side of the screen…when you tap the screen and it shows you all of the…different locations in the ePub.…There's sometimes a little set of horizontal bars…up in the top left hand corner.…
We like to call that a "Hot Dog Menu" because…it looks like hot dogs, strangely enough.…And you can tap on that to access it.…The kind that we can generate here in Word…is called a document ToC.…And in this movie, we're going to look at generating…one of those, should you want one.…Personally just so you know, I do kind of question the…necessity for these in an ePub.…They really are a thing from the world of print,…but some people like to have them there.…And there are some publishers that are maybe just too lazy…
