FlippingBook Publisher: How to create a Table of Contents for your publication



In this video you will learn how to create a Table of Contents for your FlippingBook publication. If your publication includes a Table of Contents, it will allow your clients to navigate the publication easily. Let's talk about automatic extraction of a Table of Contents from your PDF. If your original PDF already contains bookmarks, then our software will do all the work for you. As you can see, our PDF already contains a Table of Contents, so let's import the whole file into FlippingBook Publisher and see how it looks in the publication. Here we go. To make the Table of Contents visible, your customers can press on the "Table of Contents" icon in the menu below the publication. This is our Table of Contents, identical to the one, which you've just seen in the PDF reader. Now we'll show how to make a Table of Contents appear right after the publication is opened. To do this, please go to the "Properties" tab and then navigate to the "Controls" menu. You will see an option called "Side Window", which by default is set to "None". But if you change that to "Table of Contents", then it will show up immediately, when someone opens your publication. Now let's take a look at how to create a Table of Contents manually, in case you don't have bookmarks in your PDF. Step 1. After you've imported the PDF into the program, go to the menu on the left and open the "Table of Contents" tab. Step 2. First, we navigate to the page that we want to add to our Table of Contents, and then press the "Plus" button. This creates a new item, pointing to the current page. Give your entry a suitable name, and if required, change the page number manually. If you want to create 'chapters' in your Table of Contents, then please click on the "Insert Group" icon. This will create a folder and a new item in that folder. The folder represents the chapter name and the item in it is the subchapter. Let's make another sub-item by clicking on the "Plus" button. Please note: if you added items in the wrong order, you can simply drag and drop them to the right place. Now let's have a look at the result. Your users can click on any of the items and they will automatically be taken to the corresponding page. To delete an item from your Table of Contents, select it, right-click on it and then choose "Remove." Or you can also press the "Minus" icon instead, but please be aware that if you delete a folder, then all items in it will be deleted too! Thank you for your attention and good luck with your publications!
