Many students try to create a table of contents manually, without using the built-in process in Microsoft Word. They quickly give up out of frustration. The spacing never comes out quite right, does it?
But there is a simple fix! When you follow these steps, this is a simple process that takes a few moments, and it makes a world of difference in the look of your paper.
A table of contents is best used in a paper than can be divided into logical parts or chapters. You can create sections of your paper as you write or after you have completed the paper. Either way is fine.
