Updating appendix tables in word
To get captions to match the section they are in, instead of setting them categorically in a single dialog box? Rather than using the Insert Caption dialog to insert your captions, instead just copy and paste an existing one.
Then select the new caption paragraph and press F9 to update (ie so the numbering updates).
Construction of the list is similar to creating a Table of Contents.
You've built a Table of Contents in Microsoft Word using the Styles feature to mark the TOC entries or by marking them manually.
Here's where we can fix everything that's wrong with the second-level TOC entries: we can change the font from Arial to Times New Roman with the drop-down in the center, and we can fix the paragraph issues (the right indentation and the amount of vertical space before and after) by clicking on the Format button at the bottom and choosing Paragraph from the menu.
That will take us to the familiar Format Paragraph dialog box: Notice how the Print Preview window (circled in red) has changed from the first time we saw it.
For captions in the main body of the document (i.e.
in the numbered sections) I want them to be Table 3-1, Figure 4-1, etc. But that means when I add captions to my figures and tables in the appendices it labels them Table 6-1, Table 6-23, etc.
Next, we can re-define the Table of Contents the way we want.
Please note, right away, that using something besides MS Word is not an option (no matter how much I wish it otherwise).
In this document I have set up two custom List Styles.
So, for my friend Judy, who has asked me What you've learned here is just a small part of my Brief Builder's Workshop course, where you can learn all sorts of skills for building better briefs, such as creating a Table of Authorities and configuring a Table of Contents (two ways).
