Overview
This simple add-on helps you quickly find and navigate to the necessary part of your document. 

Once you open the sidebar, you can switch between the list of headings, bookmarks, images, tables, and search results. Enter a key word in the search field at the top to see all its entries in your document. A click on any entry in the list will take you to the paragraph you need to see. 

- Browse your document using your table of contents and jump to any heading. Use this tab to see search results in context.
- Create a guide through the text with the help of bookmarks. Manage them all in the add-on sidebar: here you can create, delete, name them, or get the links in just one click.
- See the list of all images and tables with their titles.
- Advanced search options let you quickly locate any content and search in text, bookmarks, images, tables, and headings at once. Enter any word or phrase in the search field to see all paragraphs that contain it and click on any result to see it in your text.

This add-on is a great assistant that provides both: an overview and a very detailed look at every section of your document.

If you have any questions about the add-on, please post them here: https://www.ablebits.com/docs/howto-use-doc-explorer/
We'll be happy to assist!

Based a whole section of our office work on this simple document navigation app, and it has simply stopped working altogether for the past week.

So this add on works great (although a little laggy) but I found out that google already has a built in version of this under the "view" menu called "outline". Hope this helps.

Google support recommended this program to remove all auto-generated bookmarks at once on an imported file. This program doesn't do that. I don't understand why it would be so hard to select-all and delete or something. But the bad rating is because bookmarks I deleted then kept showing back up. I'm sure it's a fine plugin for other purposes, but for mine it just drove me crazy in an already frustrated state.

Hello Paul, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. I'm really sorry to hear that you had such a disappointing experience. We've managed to reproduce the issue with deleting bookmarks, it occurs when they link to a table. Our developer will investigate what may be causing this behaviour, I hope we'll be able to fix it soon.

Many times better than previous solutions I encountered. The added search is very nice and I love the image, bookmarks and tables lists! Aside from that, being able to collapse sub-headers in the list was what I really needed.

Must have! - It is the best table of contents (TOC) addon - has a smart search, which is most helpful with long documents and and overall quick tool made by professionals

Really great add-on. I can navigate through document headings easily and they're all displayed in the correct order and they're collapsible in the sidebar. Alternatively, I can jump to bookmarks, images or tables just as easily. I've got a document which is over 50 pages long and contains a lot of images. It takes a couple of seconds to complete the navigation process but that's not a problem at all. I'm really pleased with the way this add-on works.
