How to Create a Dotted Table of Contents in Word
How to make the point of the table of contents can be done automatically. To create a bulleted table of contents in Microsoft Word, here’s how:
1. Open the Table of Contents in Microsoft Word
Open the table of contents to which you want to give a period in Microsoft Word. Make sure the ruler feature is available. If not, you can display it by pressing the “View” tab, then check the “Ruler” column. Blocks all text, except the table of contents title. Show paper margins by pressing the ‘File’ tab, then selecting ‘Options’. Check ‘Show text boundaries’ in the ‘Advanced’ menu. The paper margins will be immediately visible. This margin limit is useful for limiting the overall width of the text. Once the margins are visible, the block returns all text except the table of contents title. Press the ruler feature located on the top left until the ‘Right tab’ feature is selected. The ‘Right tab’ feature has a sign like the letter “L” upside down.
2. Set Endpoint Limit and Page Number Position
Set the end point border and page number position by pressing the ruler on the ruler. At this point, the ‘Right tab’ icon will appear. Double click on the ‘Right tab’ end point boundary. Make sure the position of the point boundary is to your liking. Select ‘Right’ in the ‘Alignment’ section.
3. Press ‘Set’ and ‘OK’ Options
In the ‘Leader’ section, select the dots option. Then, hit the ‘Set’ and ‘OK’ options. To add dots, hover over the end of the sentence, then press the ‘Tab’ key on the keyboard. The dots will appear on your table of contents page. To place the page number in the second ‘Right tab’, press the ‘Tab’ key again on the keyboard.
