    Great tip! Can you do similar (just without links) on Word? If so, I didn’t know that! Regardless, this is a great tip, thanks for sharing!!!

    Rosi, thank you for your question. Yes, you can make a table of contents in Microsoft Word. However, the difference is that in Docs you can click on the header in the Table of Contents and it will go directly to that spot on the page. In Word, the Table of Contents is just text.

    thanks for all the instructional videos. Regarding TOC, is it possible to create an automatic TOC pulled from multiple documents?

    document A with heading 1
    document B with heading 2
    document C containing TOC like: docA-heading1, docB-heading2

    thanks much for you help
