I'm making a research report on landscape design. The final document would have perhaps pages like 80-90 or so. Earlier I used to make reports and multipage documents on MS Word. While making the contents page, I would have to look at each and every chapter's name, subheading and then add the page number manually. Is there any automatic system in InDesign?
For example if the information about
"Sustainable water management "
is given on page number 63. Then Indesign automatically assigns the page 63 in front of the heading "Sustainable water management " in the contents page?
There's a very fast and smart way of generating Table od Contents in InDesign.
In the Layout sub menu there is an option for the Table of Contents, click there and in the opened dailog mention the paragraph styles of the text you need to insert in the TOC.
Also, mention the styles and the formatting of the contents,
It will be automatically generated.
