Create a table of contents to help your readers navigate through your work

A Table of Contents section is even more relevant in the age of digital documents(opens in a new tab or window) and electronic books. It gives your readers an at-a-glance snapshot of what they’re about to read, a guide to the chapters that interest them most, and ease of navigation.

If you’re worried about the time and effort it would take to create one, fear no more because Canva was made for busy writers like you. It’s a simple matter of browsing Canva’s collection of professionally-designed, pre-made templates then editing them as much or as little as needed. You have full control over fonts, colors and other design elements.

Give your readers a way to navigate through your book or report

The Table of Contents is not only important, it’s even a way to hook half-interested readers, especially if you’re an author marketing themselves on online self-publishing sites. Most fiction novels need one, non-fiction novels like how-to’s, cooking books and compilations definitely need one, theses and reports are much more professional and put-together with one.

Design your Table of Contents in Canva and you can easily go back to edit your file for changes or additions to your chapters. Canva even lets you design on the go, just download our free apps for iOS and Android from the App Store or Google Play.

Customize your design with fonts, colors, images or illustrations

Your Table of Contents page doesn’t have to be boring. With Canva’s easy to use but comprehensive editing tools, you have full control over design elements like font, placement and color. You can even add images or illustrations to complement certain chapters. Canva hosts an amazing media library brimming with high-quality stock photos, illustrations and icons you can drag and drop into your design.
