> it's been some time since i've used a hyperlinked TOC in my word docs, but i seem to recall that when i did, the user could simply click the section name and jump right there. now (er, in word 2003)it looks like the user has to click CTRL while clicking the section name. does that sound right? is there an easy way to modify this so that the user only needs to click, or is modifying this going to be such a headache as to not be worth the trouble. (i want to keep the doc in "print layout" view.)

Isn't this a setting in Word? In Tools > Options > Edit, I have "Use
CTRL + Click to follow hyperlink" selected. I *think* that clearing
this box gives you "real" links (but I won't swear to it).
