Track changes records every edit without making anything permanent. You can move, copy, delete and insert text, change formatting, even change pictures and insert objects. And the person who sent you the document can see the changes you made and decide whether to accept or reject them. Or you can do the same when others make changes to your document.

Introduction to Tables of Contents (TOCs)

You create a table of contents (TOC) by applying heading styles — for example, Heading 1, Heading 2, and Heading 3 — to the text that you want to include in the table of contents. Word 2013 searches for those headings and then inserts the table of contents into your document. Then you can automatically update your TOC if you make changes in your document.
