How To Create A Content Index

The content index is one of the oldest resources that exist, usually in books or magazines but not so much in Word documents, unless its extension requires it. Thanks to the index we will know where this or that content is without having to browse it, if it is on paper, or go to the search engine if it is in digital format.

If you need an index, many of us create it manually, copying and pasting the names of the sections and subsections. But always, Word allows you to create your own content index automatically. You can even do it with several different methods, to suit the consumer.

Fast and easy. By marking the elements to be indexed, Word will create an index of content that we can customize with the format that we want and include it on our own page. Let’s see how.

Method 1: With Word Styles

In a previous article entitled Apply a new format in seconds with Word Styles, we saw that thanks to the Styles it is possible to customize the appearance of a document with a couple of mouse clicks, so that the font, size and color of the letter change No need to make every change by hand.

In addition to aesthetic or format level, Styles are useful for creating a content index. Continuing with the mentioned article, if we mark headlines and subtitles with the Word Styles throughout our document, that index of content that we need will be automatically generated.

index page

To retrieve it, we will go to Reference> Table of Contents, where we will see the index and that we can paste it into a blank page. In addition, from the sidebar of the table of contents, we can alter the order of that content by simply moving the titles and subtitles.

Method 2: With Create a Word Index

The second way to create a content index with Microsoft Word is to mark the most prominent elements, whether or not they are titles or subtitles. Basically, we will have to select words, phrases or headlines and then go to References> Index and mark that content to highlight with Mark entry.

A new window will open with the title Mark index entry where we can customize the index that will be generated later. The window will remain open while we continue marking more and more elements. In addition, it is possible to mark subentries or subsubstants. The latter must include a semicolon in the Subentry field.

When we are finished, we click Close to finish marking entries, place the prompt on a blank page and go to References> Index> Insert Index. A window will open so we can customize the appearance of the index. For example, by placing the page numbers to the right with a dotted line, change that dotted line to other symbols, apply a predesigned format, that the index appears in several columns …

Once everything is configured, click on OK and go. We already have our custom content index. If in the future, we make any changes, we can update our index from References> Index> Update index.

How To Activate The Split Screen Mode On Your Xiaomi Mobile

The possibility of using two applications at the same time in our Android mobile is one of the most useful functions on certain occasions. From MIUI 9, Xiaomi users can use the split screen, which although it can be activated very easily, is not compatible with all Google Play applications. Today we are going to show you how to activate the split screen or the function known as “split screen”.

split screen

The split screen function for Xiaomi smartphones allows you to use two applications at the same time. This can be, for example, watching something on YouTube while we write an email or send photos by WhatsApp. Keep in mind that not all applications have been adopted by their respective developers to be compatible with the split screen, but knowing is as simple as activating the function itself.

How To Activate The Split Screen

In order to activate this function, the first thing that we will have to do is open the two applications that we want to have in a split screen. Once opened we will open the multitasking to see the summary of the apps that we have open. Once done, we will slide to the first app that we want to open in a split screen. When you touch the icon of the app, the option will appear. If it does not appear it means that the app does not support this mode. Once we have touched on the icon of the app we will see the option “split screen”. Now we will have to choose the second application and do exactly the same.

Now we can see a split screen in which the two applications are shown. Just touch on the top or bottom to interact with the app you want. It is also possible to go to the desktop without the need for this mode terminal since the background music of a Youtube video can continue to be heard in the background. To end the split screen mode we tend to click on the square icon divided at the bottom of the screen.

If you are from users who have never tried this option, it will be very useful when you do not want to lose your eye on any application, but in turn, we need to focus on something else. Useful if we are watching a video and we want to surf at the same time, or if we are talking about an application such as WhatsApp or Telegram while controlling the process of some installation.
