# How does one change the level of a ToC entry without adding a duplicate ToC entry?

Another user added ToC (Table of Contents) entries as level 1, but they needed to be level 2. There are quite a number of them. How can one change the level without adding new entries?

Use the Navigator (F5).

Unfortunately you can't process all levels 1 simultaneously. Select a level 1 heading you want to fix. Click on the Demote level icon in the navigator toolbar (the one with a single horizontal triangle pointing rightward). This will change Heading 1 paragraph style to Heading 2 and also all subordinate levels will be incremented so that the outline relationship is still respected. Repeat for all other level 1 to be fixed.

Note: if you want only to change level 1 to level 2 without changing depending level 2+ to level 3+ you must do that manually on each paragraph setting its style to Heading 2.
