- After your book is complete, type your table of contents if you haven't already.
- Scroll down to the first chapter in your book and highlight the chapter title (not the title in the table of contents, but the actual chapter title in the book).
- Click Insert (near the top of the screen), click Bookmark, type the bookmark name in the text box using this format "book_chaptertitle" (for example, my first chapter bookmark was named redneckmama_stupiddogs), click OK.
- Repeat with all chapters. (Don't keep using the same chapter title. Hopefully that goes without saying. For example my second chapter bookmark was named redneckmama_pavlovsdaughter.)
- Go back to your table of contents and highlight the first entry.
- Click Insert, click Hyperlink, click the target icon (in the Target in Document section), double-click Bookmarks, click the corresponding title, click Apply, Close, Apply, Close.
- Repeat with the rest of your table of contents.
That's all there is to it. This is what the table of contents looks like in an early version of my book One Good Redneck Mama. Of course you don't have to have spaces in between your titles; type it up any way you like it.
