I need to enable "Navigation Pane" to show the topic headings on the left side bar as shown in below screenshot:


If document is open on a different PC where "Navigation Pane" is not enabled in VIEW Menu, the side bar headings are not visible. Is there anyway to force /require to open this file with "Navigation Pane" always enabled?

    Thanks for reply.

    Table of contents is available on the Top of the document and not available on the left navigation pane.
    If a user has to enable Macros, I think this is not what I am looking for.
