Working with the checklist
As you work on a document, you can use the checklist to track your progress. When you tick a symbol in Diagram or Map View, the corresponding topic in Outline View is also ticked.
You can use Smart Checklist to automatically tick subtopics when you tick a symbol or topic and vice versa. When Smart Checklist is on, ticking a symbol or topic automatically ticks its subtopics. Likewise, checking all the subtopics below a symbol or topic automatically ticks the symbol or topic.
•On the Tools menu, choose Show Checklist.
The boxes show when a tick appears next to Show Checklist on the Tools menu.
In Outline and Map View, a box is displayed to the left of a topic. In Diagram View, a box is displayed at the lower right of the symbol.
•On the View menu, choose Smart Checklist.
