Hi this is Gary with MacMost Now. On today's episode lets create a table of contents in iWork pages. So say you're creating a long document, or manual, or book, in pages, and you want to create a table of contents. Well, there's a function for doing that. Lets take a look at how it works. We wanna start a new document here; I'm just going to start a blank word processing document in the vertical format. And then, I'm going to insert some text in here. I'm going to actually put on the page thumbnails on the left there so I can see the pages that I'm creating. And I'm going to insert a bunch of different text pages. This will insert pages that have sampled text in them. You can see here I'm going to do three of them. And then I'm going to go to each one and change this title at the top of each page to something that would make sense in a table of contents. So we do chapter one, beginning, um, the next page we'll do chapter two, the middle, and then chapter three. Now the idea would be that each of the titles on of these pages was an entry in the table of contents. Now I left the first page there blank, uh, if you didn't you could just create a new blank page there, and I've got here the main text area and the header area. In the main text area I want to insert a table of contents. And you can see a bunch of stuff will appear in there, and the inspector will instantly open. Now, it's set to the first tab there, which is document TOC and info. And go to the TOC here and you have the list of things that are included in the table of contents so if I only wanted the title of each of those I would deselect everything else and just leave title. Now I can see have the titles for these three pages as my table of contents. Now it doesn't quite automatically, for instance I went to this last page here, and I changed the name of it, and I go back to the table of contents you can see it didn't update; I have to press this update now button that appears in the table of contents inspector. And we can see now it updates. I can also go ahead and include this thing here, this is heading one style, and this is heading two style. If I selects heading one, it will include these as subsections under each chapter. Now as I add more I will be able to uh, see them appear there. I can even insert in the middle so for instance, if I have chapter two here I insert another text page and go back up here, update now, and can see it's inserted, this chapter here, between chapters two and three. Now I manually typed the chapter numbers. That's something I may not want to do. I may actually want to get rid of that and just have the chapter names and let the table of contents number them. So I go here now and I update and see all the chapter numbers are gone. Lets get rid of the inspector here and instead go to view, show styles drawer. We can see it pop out there, and we can move it over so we can see it. Now, when I have the table of contents selected, it will show table of content style here. I can see heading one, toc heading one selected. And under I can see character styles and list styles. Now list style it says none but I can change that to be a numbered list, and you can see it automatically puts the chapter numbers there. And one last thing you may want to do is you may want to look a the numbering on the right there and change how, how many numbers are shown. So for instance I have numbers for titles shown, but I can turn the numbers for the subheads here, so you just see the chapter page numbers. So there's a quick look on how to make a table of contents in pages. Unfortunately, there's no easy way to make an index in pages. You can do that in Microsoft word, and I've seen some complex ways to do it using Applescript in pages, but hopefully we'll get an indexing function in the future version of pages. Until the next time, this is Gary with MacMost Now.
