Table of Contents III: Use fields to create a TOC and create multiple TOCs

Chapter TOCs

Example of a book with sequential chapters.

In addition to using heading levels and using the \o switch as described in the basic option, there are two other ways to create multiple TOCs in a document. You can also:

  • Use table identifiers to identify each TOC with its own unique letter.

Use this method if you want to pick out headings throughout the document and put them in different TOCs. An example might be to include a sauce, such as hollandaise or au jus, in several different TOCs in a cookbook.

  • Bookmark sequential areas, such as all the breakfast recipes, or all the lunch recipes and then create a TOC for each bookmarked area.

If the document is split into sequential chapters or blocks of text, use this method to create a separate TOC.

You'll get to try both methods in the practice session at the end of this lesson.
