Default Removing an automatic Table of Contents

Hi,

I'm slowly but surely learning about styles, but I've come across a
problem I don't know how to solve. I have documents with automatic
Table of Contents, and I need to remove the automatic part of this. I
still need the Table of Contents, but I need to be able to add/remove
items and adjust the page numbers manually. I've read that to create
an automatic table of contents I need to go to
Insert Field Index and Tables TOC. So, how do I reverse this
equation? Thanks.

Frank

You can delete the TOC field and construct the TOC manually, but I suspect
that is not what you want. You can unlink the field with Ctrl+Shift+F9,
which will permit you to format it manually, but you won't be able to update
it any more, so be sure that editing is complete and pagination will not
change. Alternatively, you can lock the field (Ctrl+F11), which will prevent
it from updating; later, if you need to update the field, you can unlock it
(Ctrl+Shift+F11).

And if you want to modify the appearance of the TOC, you can do so by
modifying the TOC styles; this is most easily done via the Index and
Tables dialog box (Table of Contents tab): Click the Modify button and
then change the styles as desired. Confirm the settings with OK. Just
remember *not* to press OK to exit the Index and Tables dialog box (if
you press OK, Word will try to insert a new TOC, asking if you want to
replace the old one).
