Smile Writing a manual

Hi,



I am preparing a training manual in word having INDEX on first page. I prepared index by usinr reference command which is directing me to go each topics thru INDEX page.

Now when i am reading tarining material and i want to go to another topic then i have to go on first page manually bu dragging the pagaes thru cursor.

My Aim:
I want to make a "BACK" icon on each page which will bring me back on INDEX page. ( i have more than 200 pages and i dont want to type each page "BACK text)


I tried:
I tried by putting "BACK" text in footer and found that it is not user friendly.
I tried by putting "BACK" text manually on each page but when i add or delete any text this "BACK" text also move.(which i dont want).

Please help me in this regard.

Hi khalfenadeem,

What you should probably be doing on the front page is inserting a Table of Contents, linked to the relevant headings in the document, rather than using an Index.

Leaving that aside, it is impractical to add forward/back buttons to each page in a document. What you can easily do, however, is add those buttons to Word's QAT (Quick Action Toolbar). To do this:
1. Go to Office Button|Word Options|Customize
2. Choose 'Commands Not in Ribbon' from the 'Choose Commands from' dropdown
3. Scroll down and 'Add' the 'Back' and 'Forward' buttons to the QAT
Once you're done, you'll be able to use the buttons to navigate document links in the same way as in Internet Explorer.
