Question Add to index/contents list in Mobi?

Is it possible to add to the index in a mobi format book? (or I could convert it to azw3 I guess as it's to be read in a Kindle). There is a long contents list near the start of the book which is clickable, but none of the chapters appear in the 'go to' menu in the Kindle. That just lists other parts of the book like the introduction, main book and appendices. How can I get these chapters into that menu via Calibre?

An old posts says it's in Tools, but where the heck is Tools now? There isn't anything called either tools or table of contents under Preferences.

do a mobi to mobi conversion and use the option under the table of contents section of the conversion dialog to generate the table of contents from links in the book. Or convert to azw3 and use the table of content editor in the edit book tool to create the toc manually.

Thumbs up

Thank you very much.

I've now created the contents list I wanted in azw3, and it is working on the Kindle.
