The most significant change from MS Word to SciFlow is the way chapters, and signatures are created. In MS Word, a heading is often created implicitly (e.g., through higher font size, different font). 

SciFlow, on the other hand, keeps it very formal with the headings, i.e., it must always be specified which level of the heading it is. That means every chapter is automatically an H1. H1 means the chapter itself is a heading of the first order.  Every further heading within a chapter is, therefore, a subheading ranging from H2 to H5

Why is that important?

SciFlow needs this information to adjust the work automatically. For example, you don't need to worry about the numbering of headings. Also, font size and type are applied correctly for each heading and paragraph. SciFlow supports up to five header levels.

When creating the structure of your work, you can keep the overview by opening the table of contents (Document outline) in the sidebar.

The table of contents also shows figures and tables that are used in the document.

Adding a Chapter and Subheadings

With a click on the [+] button you can add a new chapter. 

A click on icon for running text opens a menu from which you can select headings of a different order within the active chapter (for example, H2 for a second order heading). 

Cross-references

You can also use the table of contents to create references. Drag the entry from the table of contents to the desired position in the text. If Chapter 1 later becomes Chapter 2, SciFlow will update the link automatically. Here you will find a detailed article.
