Make the most of the tight Word integration with built-in Tables of Contents, Figures and Tables

eaDocX documents are fully functional MS Word documents

One of the many benefits of the tight integration between EA and Word delivered by eaDocX, is that documents created with eaDocX are fully functional MS Word documents.

You can design and add all the standard document parts that your organisation recognises and requires:

  • cover pages
  • headers and footers
  • blank pages or page breaks to e.g. start new Sections on new pages.
  • auto generate a Table of Contents (TOC)
  • auto generate a Table of Figures (TOF)
  • auto generate a list of Tables (TOT)

Creating a Table of Contents

Select the Table of Contents from the Word document menu. It adds the table of contents and auto-populates headings from those defined in all your document sections – both EA generated and manually written. When you add or delete EA sections the TOC will update to reflect the full document content – each time you regenerate your whole document (either Full or Quick regeneration).

You can use any of the Automatic Word TOC formats with or without text, or customise to suit your organisational style, including hyperlinks for easy in-document navigation.

In the same way, your eaDocX document can include a Table of Figures and/or a list of Tables – particularly helpful for large documents. These will update in the same way as the Table of Contents when you regenerate your documents.
