When preparing a formal document for a construction project (a calculation log), it's mandatory to have a Table of Contents (TOC) and some hiperlinks to the same document. This would be very useful to navigate within a very large document. I would love to have hiperlinks to the Area Regions created within a document. It could be made a plugin for that?

Smath is not a clone of Mathcad as you seem a former user.
TOC Mathcad style e-books, Extension packs, there is nothing as such in Smath.
The power of Smath is around self contained document,
self contained is the sense of stand alone document,
that needs nothing else than itself to be complete and pass QA.
In Smath we have "Include" that fetches the concerned parts
in the actual document under construction, works well but no much
use in the sense of stand alone document for review, QA ...
"Include" has culprits too.
Cheers ... Jean

Andrei and company are working on a "DOCUMENT" style front end. TOC features are in the "todo" list. Please keep in mind that this program is updated by a select few ... not a corporation. Read 0.99.7684 BETA Release Blog for some information.

Smath is a CAS plugin system nude of examples, its own TOC is f(x) menu.
There are 3 repositories in Smath:
1. Wikis from the Forum
2. Martin examples-Edu file
3. The huge "Samples" in the Forum
From there, collect/add what you want in your C:\Smath TOC
My > 2800 work sheets are all in C:\Smath 6179, organized by categories.
Appendix, plot, Fourier, Genfit, Integration ... ODE, SOLVE, utilities...
From a new document: open master directory, browse ... few seconds done.
The all matter is how you organize your companionship with Smath.

Jean,
I tend to use "areas" to separate and compartmentalize. As the calculations get longer, a table of contents or a shortcut link would be "NICE". It's a feature request, that's all.

You are right Elsid: as calculations get longer you may need more in the "Include" ... add the utilities/algos you need and update the memo TOC in gray.
There are limits to TOC as some advanced calculations can only be done
locally. I can add the J_Frac to either rational fraction, but the stuff
is via local Maple, thus can't be included in TOC.
Cheers ... Jean

Hi. To do some kind of toc, with the resources available two years ago, maybe you can find something useful in this post:

https://en.smath.com/for...ering-sections-book.aspx

Many things have improved in this time in SMath, and probably what is shown in those examples can be improved.

About hyperlinking to a specific region of a SMath document, I think there is no solution at the moment.

Best regards.
Alvaro.

Hola Diego,
Please, attach a typical Smath document that suffers from TOC/Hyperlink-Region?
Smath Community will most appreciate.
Mathcad 11 has the regions hyperlink ... I tested it for sanity check.
However, has never been used in the Mathsoft Collaboratory.
Cheers ... Jean

I don't use my own hyperlink to area regions, because I don't need.
Assume you have a 40 pages document of 4 independent Area-regions.
At the very top of each Area you want to hyperlink, plug something
... what something ? ... something that will create red.

HyperlinkArea.PNG

As you visit your document, you see 4 red in the scroll bar,
click on the 1rst, 2nd, 3rd ... red scroll bar
Here are your Area-regions ... too simple, but works so well.
Is it feasible to design a function to hyperlink to page-Area ?
Try it ! ... Jean

This document contains two pieces of maths, of much different maths !
Hyperlinked in 3 area-regions from either of the 3 clicks scroll bar.
Smath SS 6179 is very understanding in there.
