Add updating text fields

If you want to insert the current chapter or section title—in a page footer, for example—use the method described here (rather than typing it manually). That way, the text is updated automatically if the title changes. You can also insert an automatically updating page number and a total page count for the book.

Insert an updating text field

  1. Place the insertion point where you want to insert the text field.

  2. Do any of the following:

    • Insert a title: Choose Insert > Section Title or Insert > Chapter Title.

      The option available depends on whether you place the insertion point in a section page or a chapter page.

    • Insert a page number: Choose Insert > Page Number or Insert > Section Number.

    • Insert the book’s total page count: Choose Insert > Page Count.
