Change wording in Table of Contents

In the Table of Contents is it possible to change the text that says "Slide Title" to something else?

I don't think Steve is talking about Slide Labels in the Properties tab.  He's mentioned Table of Contents.  I believe he's referring to the heading in the TOC that says: Slide Title
If so, then the workaround to change this is to use the same trick that people use when localising these TOC strings for different language outputs.
Just create a text file with the following text in it.
ClearToolTip=Wipe State
NoSearch=String not found
Name this file as TOCStrings.ini and save it in the folder in which Adobe Captivate is installed. Default path where Adobe Captivate is installed is “C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Captivate 6”.
For more information, Please refer to the blog post t.html

  • Bookmarks are not automatically creating based on Word 2013 Table of Contents.

    Bookmarks are not automatically creating based on Word 2013 Table of Contents.  In older version of Word, the Style built Table of Contents converted into Bookmarks when PDFing.

    I figured it out.  There is a new checkbox you must turn on in Word 2013 when export to PDF that allows it to convert items to Bookmarks when PDFing.

  • Word 2013 table of contents duplicated in PDF

    I have a large MS Word document - 326 pages, 56 thousand words and hundreds of images.  I have a table of contents in my word document.  When I use the MS Word "Save as Adobe PDF" to turn it into PDF, the finished document contains TWO tables of contents, one right after the other.
    In the original Word Document the first item in the text ("Acknowledgements") is found on page "ix" and is correctly referenced in the ToC.
    In the PDF, the FIRST ToC also correctly references "Acknowledgements" and says it is found on page "ix".  However, because there is a SECOND ToC, Acknowledgements now actually appears on page "xiv".  The SECOND ToC lists Acknowledgements as being on "xiv", but all the other page numbers are correct and identical in both versions of the ToC.  The hyperlinks in both ToCs work perfectly.
    I have removed the ToC from the Word document and re-installed it but the problem persists.  Why is PDFmaker duplicating the table of contents like this?
    Operating system: Windows 7 x64
    MS Office 2013 (64-bit)
    Acrobat Pro XI  (patch level 11.0.08) - I note that the PDFmaker COM add-in is a 32-bit version.

  • Remove / change dots in Table of contents

    Hi guys,
    I have a table of content (standard) in Indesign.
    But under each item is a black dotted line.
    1. How can I change this dotted line to grey?
    2. Change the line style to a stripe or something.

    In the paragraph style check the section Paragraph Rules (and use the dropdown to investigate both Rule Above and Rule Below -- I think it has the Rule Below active). Check the box or clear it next to the dropdown to turn the rule on or off.
    A tab leader is a character or set of characters (you can use spaces, for example, to spread apart dots, or combine a dot and an underscore, or a bullet and a hyphen for a decorative look) that fills the space occupied by the tab character. There's a field in either the Tabs palette or in the Tabs section of the paragraph style where you can enter the character(s) once you set the tab position and select the tab marker on the ruler.
    I prefer a custom underline (applied as a style) on the tab if you can create the look you want with ID's stroke styles because you have more control over weight and positioning than you do with the tab leader.

  • Change formatting of table of contents in Hyperion Financial Reporting

    We're using Hyperion Financial Reporting to generate carefully formatted books of reports. Users complain about the default table of contents in these books, specifically:
    --> formatting: the basic text-only, portrait-only, formatting does not fit with the "look and feel" of reports within the books.
    --> placement: the fact that it doesn't seem possible to place anywhere within a book, apart from as the first page (they like a title page to sit at the front of a book of reports).
    --> content: having a limited options for defining the text identifying each item within the table of contents. For example, the same combination of dimension members appear for each item in the table of contents, so the first few items look something like:
    Dimension2_Label, Dimension1_Label, Dimension3_Label, Dimension4_Label ....................1
    Dimension3_Label, Dimension1_Label, Dimension4_Label, Dimension2_Label ....................2
    I remember reading somewhere that it's possible to define custom table of contents. Has anyone had any experience of hacking this? Where can I find relevant documentation on defining custom table of contents?
    Grateful if anyone has any advice.

    Hi Nathan
    I've never done this before but there is a section in the Financial Reporting Workspace Administrators Guide (chapter 5). However this involves accessing the css style sheets and in my experience this can have unwanted and unexpected effects in other areas. It does appear to be fairly well documented though in this case so perhaps it is more reliable in this instance.
    It does specifically mention HTML format and not PDF format so if you are publishing to PDF it is worth checking the impact on that too. Take a look at the attached for version 11.1.2 but I'm fairly sure this was available in earlier versions too.
    Hope this helps

  • Word 2013 Table of contents - page numbers all change to 2 when print (or print preview)

    I have a single section document in Word 2013.  The first page is a TOC.  The document is 4 pages long and has three Level 1 Heading styles through out the document.  The TOC initially appears correct. 
    When I go to Print Preview the TOC will revert all page numbers to 2. 
    Changing the Options "Update fields before printing" and  "Allow fields containing tracked changes to update before printing" has no effect (before anyone suggests this).
    The only solution is to manually update the TOC, save to PDF, and print the PDF.
    Anyone can reproduce this problem. Try it....
    Start with blank document
    Insert a TOC (ignore the error message, we will come back to this)
    Go to the end of the document and insert a page break to move to page 2
    Now type a heading in Heading 1 style and press enter
    type some dummy text (=rand(20) for example)
    Continue steps 4 and 5 to insert more headings and dummy text.
    Now return to the top (page 1) and update the TOC
    So far so good.  Everything working well
    Now go to Print Preview (Ctrl+P)
    Everything is still good
    Escape back to the document
    Go to Print Preview again
    AGGGHHHH! All the page numbers have reverted to page 2
    Happens every time without fail.  Totally reproducible on all our office PCs.
    I have seen many descriptions of this behavior on different forums and
    not one solution. But I am like the proverbial dog with a bone - I will not let this issue go until MS gives me a solution !

  • Word to PDF does not keep hyperlinks in Table of Contents ?

    I have used my free trial of Adobe CreatePDF before purchasing the annual subscription.
    I was surprised to see that the PDF document did not keep the clickable hyperlinks that Word uses in a Table of Contents. As this is the exact same behaviour as the "Save as PDF ..." option that I have natively available on my computer I don't see the point of paying a subscription to the service. Or am I doing something wrong?
    MAC OS X Lion (10.7.2)
    Office for Mac 2011
    150-page .doc document with Section, Chapter, and various Heading Styles defined
    WORD automatically-built Table of Contents
    In the WORD document, the page numbers in the Table of Contents are hyperlinks to the concerned page
    Convert WORD to PDF using "Save as PDF ..." option in the "Print..." dialog box
           ====> Table of Contents hyperlinks are not preserved (the page numbers are no longer clickable)
    Convert WORD to PDF using Adobe CreatePDF
           ====> Table of Contents hyperlinks are not preserved (the page numbers are no longer clickable)
    Am I missing something or is this the way it is intended (not) to work?
    P.S.: I know that, on the MAC, I can use Preview to manipulate the PDF document I obtain through "Print..." > "Save as PDF...". One of the things I can do is to select the page numbers in the Table of Contents and add a 'link' to each. But this is a VERY cumbersome process. Actually, I have to create a link for each page number, one at a time, on a table of contents that may consist of in excess of 50 entries. As I have a collection of 50-odd documents and am on a schedule of distributing new versions every two weeks or so, this procedure is completely unusable. Hence my search for a (paid) service that converts my documents while preserving the hyperlinks of the Word-created Table of Contents. Either I am doing something wrong or such service does simply not exist ...

    Good day fgrexsg,
    You are correct in that the workflow you described will not produce links in the resulting PDF files.  The steps that Lori outlined work great if you're working on Office for Windows in terms of getting the links to work when converting using the CreatePDF service. 
    In order to make this work on the Mac, you'll have to take a few extra steps within Office first.
    You're going to have to repeat this step for each item in your TOC.  While this will be time-consuming for a 150-page document, it will work.
    Within your TOC, highlight the entire entry listing (e.g. Topic 1.........3)
    Once the entire line is highlighted, choose Insert > Hyperlink
    Click 'Document' to select a location within the current document.
    Under the 'Anchor' option, either type in the Heading/Sub-heading (must be exact) of the page you want the hyperlink to attach to or click 'Locate' and find the proper Heading/Sub-heading within the structure.
    As I said, this will probably be time-consuming on such a large document, but it will work. 
    Unfortunately Office for Mac just simply isn't as full-featured as its Windows counterpart.
    Please let me know if you have any questions.
    Kind regards,

  • Microsoft Word-Table of Contents-Update Page Numbers

    I am having trouble updating my page numbers within the Table of Contents in a Microsoft Word document. On a Windows machine, I would click to the left of the table and then click F9. On an Apple, that adjusts the brightness of the screen or modifies the screen if I accompany the F9 with the Apple or Function button. Does anyone know how to update the page numbers without creating a new Table of Contents?

    In Mac OSX it is possible to change or create keyboard shortcuts for all applications as well as the system itself.
    Go to +System Preferences > Keyboard and Mouse > Keyboard shortcuts+
    Select the menu item for whatever application, in this case Dock, Exposé and Dashboard, click on the keyboard shortcut and change it to whatever you would like.
    It will then work the next time you launch the application. If it is a menu item the name of the shortcut must match the menu name exactly.

  • My table of contents does not use the entry style I select for words in the paragraph that have character styles applied to them in the chapter, so some of the letters are showing up as green, which is fine in the chapter but not in the TOC.

    My table of contents does not use the entry style I select for words in the paragraph that have character styles applied to them in the chapter, so some of the letters, specifically parameters, are showing up green, which is fine in the chapter but not in the TOC. I can manually fix this in the TOC by changing the character style to none after the toc  has been generated, but I don't want to do this.

  • When switching format from word- pages -word I realized that i lost my table of content. What should I do?

    I had a word document from my Microsoft office. When extracting it to edit on my MAC, i realize that pages has omitted the table of content. The table of content was obvious so I noted it. My fear was, that there are other things that get omitted of great value.
    Thank you

    What do you mean by "extracting"?
    You are aware that Pages is not a Word clone? It will open and convert Word .doc/x files but may change the content.
    If you want a Word clone try LibreOffice [free] or use Word for Mac.

  • Change Table of Contents Expander Icon

    Is it possible to change the Expander Icon [>>] to
    actually read "Table of Contents".

    Rh is using Word's default TOC style.
    If you are generating using the project's CSS, or any other CSS, then you are stuck with fixing each document.
    If you generate to a Word template, then open the template and modify the TOC style to be left aligned. I just tried it and it works fine.

  • Report Generation Toolkit: Table of Contents in MS Word

    Hello forum users,
    I would like to add a table of contents to a MS Word document, using the Report Generation Toolkit.
    I couldn't find a VI in the toolkit that does that, so I tried to modify the VI "Word Insert". Doing so, I could access a property node of the class "Word._Document"  and an invoke node of the class "Word.TablesOfContents" with the method "Add".
    As this modified VI does not belong to the private LabVIEW class "NI_Word.lvclass", it is not possible to unbundle the (type cast) "report in" wire to get the "Word._Document" class reference. I can't add the modified VI to the NI_Word class either, because it is password protected.
    There are so many methods and properties that are not used in the official Report Generation Toolkit, like this one. How can I access them?
    Or maybe there is another way to add a table of contents to a MS Word document (programmatically). Maybe I have to use a template. I rather wouldn't, though.
    Operating System: Windows 7 64bit
    LabVIEW: 2009 [9.0 (32bit)]

    Hello again,
    in the "Word Specific" > "Word Advanced" Palette of the Report Generation Toolkit, there is a VI called "Word Get ActiveX References" which essentially unbundles the private "report" data stream / wire. Thus, I can use the property and invoke nodes that make use of the "Add TablesOfContents" method.
    I hope, that helps other users as I didn't find too many topics on Report Generation. Maybe it's just too easy...

  • Acrobat X, Word 2011, and Links in Table of Contents

    I have a 300+ page document in Word 2011, with a Table of Contents that has been automatically generated by Word, based off headings.
    When I "print" the document using "Save as Adobe PDF" from the Print dialouge, the PDF comes up, but the links in the ToC no longer work.
    I've looked online for a solution, but I am noticing two things:
    1) The option to turn the ToC links into Hyperlinks is not present on the Mac version of Word (2011).
    2) I opened the file in Word 2010 on a PC, and enabled the above feature, and then brought it back to my Mac and Word 2011 - the links now seem active in Word.  However, when I convert it to PDF, the links still do not work in the PDF.
    Is there an automated way to make the links convert, or to add them to the PDF?  With 300+ pages, a Table of Contents with working links is almost essential for navigation.
    Thank you!

    That's a defect (bug) in Adobe(Mac) that has been going on for 15 years and Adobe refuse to admit it and fix it. In Reference to Links.
    The only work around is to use iWork's Pages.
    The links should be active. Then Create the PDF from there The links should be live.
    I've heard you can do the same thing with Preview, But haven't tried. I know Pages will.
    Its no wonder that Apple won't allow Flash on the iPad. Besides not fixing Flash issues on the Mac paltform, They have a history of refusing to fix problems with Acrobat on The Mac Platform.

  • Change the table of contents in Adobe Presenter 9

    It appears that Presenter automatically creates the tables of contents for a Powerpoint presentation based on the slide title. Is there a way to modify the name that appears with a TOC navigation without changing the slide title?
    I would also like to know if it's possible to structure the TOC so that there are main topics and sub topics. For example, in Captivate, you can modify the TOC by clicking on the arrows in the menu to push categories under one another, like an outline:
    Main Topic
         Subtopic Slide 1
         Subtopic Slide 2
    Main Topic 2
         Subtopic Slide 1 
         Subtopic Slide 2

    Presenter doesn't have the same functionality for the TOC as Captivate. There is some wizardry that can be done if you want to adjust the look of the slide list.
    Work around was discussed in this thread:

  • Finished script: Use grep find/change to fill in a supplied table of contents

    This script is now complete, and has been the subject of most of my previous posts. Just in case anyone wanted to know what the finished script ended as, here it is.
    Thanks so much to all. A lot of really helpful folks on this board are very responsible for the success of this task. This script is to be one of hopefully many in the creation of our records. But it's a huge leap forward. Thanks again to everyone that helped.
    Automatically find town names in listings, and fill in table of contents template on page 2 accordingly.
    Example of page 2 toc, initially:
    Example of a page of content. The town names are what need to be referenced on the TOC:
    Example of page 2 toc once script is finished:
    Because of the need to include the transaction dates on the TOC (comes as a provided, tagged-text file), a simple Indesign-generated TOC can't be used alone.
    This script uses an Indesign-generated TOC that's on a master page called "T-tocGen" ... It then uses grep search and replaces to grab the needed information, and insert it into the page 2 TOC.
    The script will update a generated TOC and then search for an instance of a page number, and town name. The generated toc lists all included towns in the following format:
    (line start)## tab townName(line end)
    In Grep, this would be (please note, extra \ for \d and \t ... javascript needs that for some reason):
    After the script gets the info it needs from a found instance of the above, it replaces that line with "---", to prevent that line from being picked up once again.
    The script with then place the needed page number in it's rightful place on page 2, replacing the XX.
    A while loop is used to repeat the above process until there are no longer any instances of "^\\d+\\t(.*)$" present.
    Not every town runs every issue, so once the script is done, it removes all remaining instance of "XX" on the page 2 TOC.

    You are correct but the problem is there are three rows, One row is 100% black, the second is 60% black and the third is 40% black. I want to change the black to blue, the 60% black to an orange and the 40% black to a light shaded blue. In the find/change option you can select the tint you want to find and replace but yea.. does work on table cells.. oddly enough.
