The Google Docs outline tool is a great way to quickly navigate the different parts of your documents. The outline may be used to ensure every intended topic is covered.

Note: Subtitles will not appear in the outline.
- Select “View” from menu
- Select “Show document outline“
- On the left side of the document next to “Outline,” click the “X” to the right of Close.
