WORD 2013 and appendix

Posted on 2014-07-16

I have a document with a table of contents.

On this TOC, I have several chapters, when I want oto create a new chapter, I simply copy a previous chapter heading, and paste it towards the end of the document, and then I reformat the TOC.  So I have a TOC that looks something like:

Chapter 1
Chapter 2
Chapter 3

Open in new window

So if I want to add an appendix,, do I simply cut and past a previous chapter heading, or  are appendixes handled differently.

If they are handled differently, what path do I take to create an appendix

    You can treat an appendix just like an extra chapter.

    In practice, most Word users equate a chapter with a Section, which can be created by inserting a Section Break. (You may already be doing that). If it is a Next Page Section Break, the chapter will automatically start on a new page. Another advantage of using sections is that they can have different Headers and/or Footers. Also, independently of that, they can have separate page numbering.
