When editing a template version, you can format text to use a heading tag. When a heading tag is used instead of the Normal paragraph tag, the font has a large default size and top margin. What's more important is that a heading tag identifies the start of a section. Another new heading tag identifies the end of the last section and the start of a new section.
The template editor provides four different heading tags: Heading 1, Heading 2, Heading 3 and Heading 4. Note that the Table of Contents and Skip Sections functionality only works until the third level so it is recommended to only use these heading tags: Heading 1, Heading 2 and Heading 3.
Below shows the heading tags available in the template editor.
When a template includes a Table of Contents, you can see how the different headings have various levels of indention.
How to Format Text as a Heading
The default formatting of text in the template editor is the paragraph tag. The editor refers to this formatting as "Normal".
You can change the format of text from the normal paragraph formatting to use a heading tag.
Below is an example template where all the text is formatted as the normal paragraph.
To change the formatting, first select the text that you want to change the formatting of.
Then locate the More Paragraph button in the top toolbar. Clicking on it will expand another toolbar of options.
Find the Paragraph Format option. Clicking on it will open a menu of formatting options.
You can then select the desired format. In this example we are going to choose Heading 1 since this will be a top level section.
We can then format all the other sections that we want at the same level to use the Heading 1 format as well.
Formatting Text to be a Sub Section
If we want to include a sub section, we can do so by simply adding more text and then formatting it using a tag that has a greater number. E.g. Heading 2 will be child of Heading 1, Heading 3 will be child of Heading 2 and Heading 1, etc.
Let's adding a sub section to our example. (The Safety Equipment section was removed to converse space.)
Since 1. Scope and 2. Work Tasks sections are formatted as Heading 1, we will need to format the new sub section of 2.1 Getting Started and 2.2 Doing the Work as Heading 2.
Once the two new sub sections are formatted as Heading 2, then the Table of Contents can be refreshed and reflect the hierarchy of sections.
