Create a table of contents in an article

Updated Dec 05, 2019

Have you ever wanted to quickly create a clickable table of contents at the top of an article? This article will show you how to create a table of contents at the top of an article with links that jump to headings within the same article.

Are you using the web or desktop editor?

Add a text field where you want your table of contents

Insert Paragraph Text

Add a Heading Link

You can include regular text in the text field. When you are ready to include a link that jumps down to the heading of an article, click on the Insert Link icon and select Heading.

In the dialog that appears click on the Link button next to the heading you want to insert then click OK.

Add one heading at a time

You can add one heading at a time. In this article, I created a bulleted list and added a heading for each bullet.

Example

You can add clickable heading links anywhere in your article. Many customers are adding links at the top of lengthy articles, so we used that example here. But you can add headings to any text block in the ScreenSteps desktop editor.

Congratulations, you are done!
