Page numbers in word 2016 not updating
Dealing with the table/figure Track Changes by accepting/rejecting them usually sorts this out.
In this example, the TOC entries are all in red and there’s a change bar to the right of the TOC. To fix it, turn off Track Changes (Review tab), then update the TOC again (see below for how). Super easy with an immediate reduction in stress related to things going wrong with your document just before your deadline ;-) The second issue relates to why the new tables/figures, sections etc.
Microsoft Word has an automatic table of contents function that can automatically generate a table of contents for your document, provided you correctly tag the chapter headers and sub-headers that you wish to show in your table of contents.
Setting this up can be a time-consuming process, but if you are writing a lengthy document that will go through several drafts, the automatic Table of Contents can save you a lot of manual revising each time your page numbers or chapter titles change.
Headings formatted with the H1 style become main topics, while headings formatted with H2 become subtopics.
You may be working with a document that's already written and needs a Table of Contents added, but you want to preserve the font and formatting of the document.If you have a template or other type of document that regularly requires the date to be updated, you can make Microsoft Word 2016 or 2013 display a date that automatically updates.
