Linked Table of Contents

For many years my primary writing tool has been Microsoft Word.  It seems to be the standard.  All my recent writing has been in Word 11 for the Mac.  All versions since Word 2000 have the ability to automatically generate a hyperlinked Table of Contents.  Within an e-book, this means one can go to the beginning of a book, find the Table of Contents, and click on any Chapter Heading, map or table designator and go directly to the item in question.

After I had uploaded my first title to Smashwords, I found a warning regarding having hidden code in my document.  I knew nothing of hidden code, but eventually found I had hidden code in my auto-generated Table of Contents created in Microsoft Word.  I had to return to my original document, strip the hidden code, and painstakingly rebuild a hyperlinked Table of Contents.  With that done, Smashwords approved my title for its premium catalog.

I spent most of my professional years working in Educational Technology. A job and a passion. I am now trying to retool as a writer. My web site focuses on the Stonechild Chronicles, novels of a young Cree trapper and linguistic prodigy who volunteers for a private Scots regiment as the world braces for WW 2. I publish through If you search there by Jim Burk or Stonechild you will find my content including a biography of my father, "Horses, Trails and Trophies."
