Moving a chapter, section, or topic in the plan outline Follow

The plan outline is highly flexible. You can change the order of the chapters, and the order of sections within a chapter. You can even move sections and topics from one chapter to another.

What are chapters, sections, and topics?

This screen shot shows you how the parts of the outline are named, which will be useful to know as you use the instructions below:

Moving a chapter

  1. In the Plan tab, at the bottom of the left sidebar, click Edit Outline

  2. Click on the chapter heading you'd like to move, and drag the chapter or section to the new location:

  3. When you move a chapter, all of the sections and topics in that chapter will move along with it. The change will save automatically.

 

Moving a section or topic

  2. Click on the section or topic you'd like to move and drag it to the new location:

  3. If you move a section, all topics in that section will move along with it. You can move sections or topics within the same chapter, or move them into another chapter. 
  4. The change will save automatically.

    Note: Topics must be contained within sections, and sections must be contained within chapters. If you move a topic directly under a chapter heading, the software will insert a section between them, as shown below:

    In this case, you can give the section and topic the same title. Then, suppress the title of the topic to avoid a duplicate heading displaying in your plan.
