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 keeps it quite formal with the headings, i.e., it must always be specified which level of the heading it is. For example, H1 means the heading of the first order, i.e., chapter. P means paragraph, thus text. 

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.

With a click on H1, a menu appears to add or move more chapters. 

A click on P opens a menu from which you can select headings of a different order (for example, H2 for a second order heading). 

SciFlow supports up to five header levels. The header levels that are useful for the use are always displayed. For example, no H3 is shown until there is an H2.

When creating the structure of the 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. 


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.
