Navigating your Google Doc is easy using bookmarks and hyperlinking the text, but Google Docs has an even easier way to do this for longer documents with multiple sections.
Just add a table of contents from the bottom of the "Insert" menu.
Then when you add a section heading within your text, highlight it and hold cmd+alt+1 to create a big heading for that section. Use 2 or 3 instead of 1 for smaller headings. All headings are automatically hyperlinked in the table of contents.
You can refresh the table of contents by clicking within it and then clicking the refresh arrow.
Google Docs even indents the smaller headings for you, giving your document a more professional feel.
