TOC entry sequence problem

I may be missing something very obvious structurally, but the problem is that I am generating a table of contents based on a TOPIC TITLE on a page and the SUBHEADERS on the pages. Both have styles identified, but when generating the TOC, the SUBHEADERS from the "next" pages appear under the TOPIC TITLES of the previous pages. For example, if I have SUBHEADER "A" and "B" listed on the page with TOPIC TITLE "TB". In the generated TOC, SUBHEADERS "A" and "B" are listed under TOPIC TITLE "TA" which is the page prior to "TB". Don't get it and can't seem to solve it. If anyone can shed some light, please advise.
Thanks,
John

Pix attached. It appears that the subheadings (Flame Bullet style) are appearing on the pages previous to each title in the TOC.
Thank you.

  • Page Indent problem with TOC entries...

    I have a few TOC entries running to more than one line. I would like the text to be indented from the existing right indent/margin set-up so that the text does not extend as far as the Page numbers on the right hand margin of the TOC text frame. I have set a right tab so that the page numbers are tabbed over to the right edge of the frame but if I bring the right margin in with more indenting (presently 5mm), I can't have a tab stop for the page outside the right margin.
    And if I insert soft-returns/new-line chars they wil get lost every time I rebuild the TOC (there will be a lot of that!)
    Any ideas, Im sure this comes up for book designers all the time.

    The same way you have a left first line indent, there is a right last line indent. You can set the right indent to (for example) two inches, and the last line right indent to negative two inches, and everything on a single line will go all the way to the right edge of the frame, and any paragraph that requires line breaks will break two inches to the left of the frame's right edge, while the last line will go to the right edge.

  • Maybe a bug in the enumerationof the TOC entries?

    Hi,
    I would like to have a table of contents (TOC) with enumerated chapters.
    First I adapted the chapter styles to use indented lists. This provided me with headings such as:
    1. Chapter
    1.1 SubChapter
    2 Chapter
    Then I inserted a TOC. Unfortunately only the heading texts not their numbers were displayed. It looked a little bit like this:
    Chapter
    SubChapter
    Chapter
    As a workaround I added indented lists to the TOC style. This nearly worked. My only problem is that Pages always looses the indention parameter. It is first displayed correctly and after selecting something else the indention is reset to 1. This looks like this:
    1. Chapter
    2. SubChapter
    3. Chapter
    I have the impression that the indention is not set in the TOC style but in the associated heading style. This would clearly be a bug.
    Any help/idea is greatly appreciated!
    Best regards,
    Torsten

    I have the same problem. The only workaround I found: each time before exporting as PDF or printing I would select the TOC entries that need to be indented (starting with the most-indented one) and manually increase the indention by one. Fortunately, Pages automatically selects all TOC entries with the same paragraph style, so it's easy to select all entries that should have the same indention if you use different paragraph styles for the different levels.
    I left some feedback at http://www.apple.com/feedback/pages.html.

  • TOC third page problems

    Our TOC entries look like this:
    Chapter 1 Introduction . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 1-1
    HOWEVER, if the TOC goes past the second page, they lose the leader dots:
    Chapter 99 Florbling the Gromitz     99-1
    (No, we don't really have 99 chapters!)
    In my vast ignorance, I have no idea how to fix this. In their (presumably less vast) ignorance, neither do my Frame "experts" in-house. I've wandered around menus and Help without making any progress.
    I'm running 8.0p266, non-structured.
    Thanks in advance for any insight!

    What is the Master Page for the initial TOC page?
    What is the MP for the third page?
    (the 2nd page should be immaterial to the problem)
    So, if I do the Format > Page Layout > Master Page Usage thing on the third page of the TOC, I see (faked as text);
    Use Master Page:
    Right/Left is selected
    Apply to:
    Current Page (v) is selected
    Even (Left) and Odd (Right) are selected
    Second page is the same; first is the same except "Custom: First" is selected instead of Right/Left under Use Master Page:.
    If the 3rd page is using an MP that differs from the 1st & 2nd pages, what is the layout of that page?
    Um...so I assume it's using Odd (Right). How do I tell what the layout of that page is? I go to View/Master Pages, and Right looks the same as Left to me.
    With the TOC.fm file open to frame, on page 3, can you hand-type a TOC entry that gets the proper dotted tab leader formatting?
    No. On page 2, I can type xyz<tab> and get leader dots; on page 3, no dots (and the tab does nothing visible).
    And please confirm that the "xyzzyTOC" paragraph types that are failing  on page 3 are the exact same pgf fmt names that work on p1 and p2.
    Yes. That's what I meant about adding entries *earlier* that push entires onto page 3 -- the same entries that looked fine on page 2 are bogus on page 3.

  • TOC entries: is there a limit to how many links you can have to the same htm in TOC?

    TOC entries: is there a limit to how many links you can have to the same htm in TOC? I have an HTM that requires multiple links in the TOC. Now I can't compile a CHM. I have eliminated all other possible problems...

    Hmm, that would be a new one on me, but I see new things all the time and try to always keep an open mind.
    Okay, so one way past this might be to do the following.
    Create a snippet. Copy the content of the desired page and paste into the snippet.
    Create 30 different versions of the same topic by simply placing the Snippet into each topic. Then insert the different topics into the TOC.
    You should still be able to modify the content of the topic in the single place (the snippet) and by having discrete points from the TOC, there should be no issue and synchronization should work beautifully.

  • TOC Entry Formatting Error

    Worked through the online help at http://help.adobe.com/en_US/indesign/cs/etc., and all has fallen into place except for the formatting of the entries within the table of contents itself.
    There are two levels of main text: chapter and section. Each has its own style. There is a separate style of TOC entry for each level. In Layout | TOC table, each entry style is selected for the respective level in "Include Paragraph Styles".
    In the actual table of contents, the entry is shown formatted according to the main text level rather than the entry style, except for one section header, whose TOC entry is formatted correctly. All other section headings are formatted the same. I xcannot detect any difference in the way that individual heading is formatted.

    Jack Cane wrote:
    What I'm taking away from this discussion is that, to insure quality, I should redo all images using 'Place' instead of 'Paste'. Please confirm.
    That's correct.
    Now about your TOC problem....
    Every single bit of text in that test file has both a paragraph style and a charcter style applied, and in some cases a local override as well. This tells me that you really don't understand how styles are used in ID. All text is auotmaitcally styled with a paragraph style (Basic Paragraph if you don't designate something else). This paragraph style should set the specifications COMPLETELY for how paragraphs of that type should look so that no further modifications need to be made. If you need another "look" for a different paragraph, you define another style. You can base one style on another, and those arrtibutes that are not changed will update if you edit the base style.
    Character styles are used to change the appearance of "special case" text within a larger paragraph, not to define the way an entire paragraph should appear (see above). Character styles are not considered "overrides" of paragraph style formatting, so they are not automatically removed when you change paragraph styles, even if you choose to remove overrides. This is the problem in your TOC -- the correct paragraph styles are being assigned, but because the text being picked up carries character styles, those character styles are still being applied in the TOC, and in some cases local formatting is being picked up as well (you'll see the telltale + after a stylename when that happens).
    Bottom line, you need to remove the character styles and local formatting from the paragraphs in the book, and then the TOC should format correctly.

  • Is there a way to remove the .swf extension from the TOC entries in an aggregator project?

    I've created a Captivate 5 aggregator project that includes swf outputs which were also published using Captivate 5. The TOC entries in the aggregator project all show the published file name followed by the .swf extension (see attached image). Is there a way to hide the .swf extension in the TOC entries?

    Yes, a colleague of mine was able to figure it out. Just double-click the chapter title in the .aggr project. It places it into edit mode and allows you to remove the ".swf" extension as well as make any other changes to the name that you want. It's so easy now that we know how to do it, but it was tricky to figure out since the chapter list does not appear editable at first.

  • Is there a way to prevent Robohelp WebHelp from appending characters to the end of the URL address for a TOC Entry?

    I am running RoboHelp 10 on Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 64 bit OS.
    WebHelp is appending characters to the end of the TOC entry's URL address. The characters "bc-n" where n is a number are being generated for all of the TOC Page Entries when I generate WebHelp output. We are exporting the HTML files for import into an application. The TOC Page Properties Link to: property does not contain the characters in RoboHelp.
    We have standardized names defined for our application and the appended characters are not going to work in the application.
    cid:[email protected]
    When I use the generated html output in IE10 Version 10.0.9200.16635 Update Versions: 10.0.7 (KB2846071) the characters show up in the URL when I hover the mouse over the TOC entry as shown in the screenshot below.
    cid:[email protected]
    The two screenshots show that the Link to property does not have the characters "bc-7" but the URL address does.
    Is there a setting or way to configure RoboHelp to prevent Robohelp WebHelp from generating and appending characters to the end of the URL address for TOC Entries?

    I have never known Rh add any characters so I think something else is at play here. Please open one of the sample projects and see what happens there. Click Open on the RoboHelp Starter page and then click Samples in the ribbon on the left.

  • How do I update linked FM files without losing TOC entries or Map IDs?

    Hi,
    I'm using RH 10 with linked FM 11 files to create a WebHelp project and this is what happens when I do an update or force update of a linked file in the RH project:
    After the update, the topic that contains updated content gets deleted from project TOC in RH.
    After the update, any Map IDs assigned to the topic that contains the updated content are deleted.
    Can someone please advise how to update a linked file without losing TOC entries or Map IDs?
    Thanks a bunch!
    Gabe

    HI Gabe,
    You will want to link the TOC from FM in your conversion settings, and set the map id's via TopicAlias markers in FM.

  • Extendscript that duplicates a hypertext marker in a TOC entry

    Hi everybody,
    I guess many Framemaker users have encountered the following issue in Framemaker: when adding a character format to a word/character inside a heading (while the rest of the heading has its "usual" format), the corresponding TOC link area is partially clickable. The reason for this is that the “foreign” character format somehow disrupts the hypertext command. The only workaround proposed on the Web is to use a Framescript to duplicate the hypertext marker in the TOC entry each time the character format is changed. Is it possible to create an Extendscript that does that?
    Thank you for your input in advance!
    Kind regards,
    Roman

    Roman,
    Yes this is definiotely possible and the algorithm could be identical to the FrameScript solution. I can think of two methods: Either using Copy and Paste to create the second instance of the marker or – as a marker is such a simple object – just read the MarkerText property from the existing marker and create a new Hypertext marker at the appropriate text location and set the MarkerText.
    I once did a comparison between FrameScript and ExtendScript solutions (see http://wp.me/p25LLF-4n ) and you can use the same algorithms.

  • Go to the source of a TOC entry

    I know that I can use the Bookmarks panel to go to the page source of a TOC entry. Is there a way to go to the paragraph source so that the text cursor will go to the exact paragraph that is the source of the TOC entry?

    TOC entries are disconnected from their sources. They are not hyperlinks. Within InDesign, there's no way to jump from a TOC entry to its source, as there is within FrameMaker

    InDesign TOC entries and index entries require you to check Hyperlinks in the Include section of the PDF Export dialog box, to create them as clickable links in the exported PDF.

  • Go the the source of a TOC entry

    InDesign can navigate to the page source of a TOC entry using the Bookmarks panel. But there doesn't seem to be a way to navigate to the exact paragraph source of the TOC entry.
    If anyone is aware of a script that would add this capability to InDesign CS4, it would be a wonderful help and time-saver for trouble-shooting the TOC.

  • TOC entry without new topic

    I have a multi-chapter project in FrameMaker 12 that I've linked in RH11. I use RH to auto-generate the TOC. The first page of each topic has the first two headings from each FM chapter, with the remaining headings starting each remaining topic. I've done this by creating and mapping two paragraph styles in FM. H0, H1, and H1A. I use FM to auto number them like this:
    100 H0 Chapter title
    101 H1A Topic 1
    102 H1 Topic 2
    103 H1 Topic 3
    In RH Project Settings / FM conversion settings, I set H1 to start a new topic, which creates a corresponding TOC entry. I've set H1A to not start a new topic because my client wants it on the same page as the first topic. However this of course doesn't create a TOC entry. This makes it look like the H1A entry is missing from the document.
    Is there a way to have RH include a FM paragraph in the TOC, but exclude it from creating a new topic?

    I already had the TOC in FM, along with the index and glossary. I'm transitioning my client to publish online, but they want to keep the PDF publish option. When I brought the FM content to RH and started styling the Responsive HTML5, I wanted to keep the first two H1 sections on the first page of each topic and have the remaining FM heading start new topics. So I created the H1A format in FM and used that for the 2nd heading in FM. Then in the RH conversion settings I set H1 to start a new topic, but not H1A. But the H1A was excluded from the imported and published TOC. I mistakenly assumed that was because I didn't have it set to a new topic also. Once I read the responses here I backed up and realized that it was actually because I didn't add H1A to the FM TOC after I created that para format in FM. Stupid mistake.

  • Moving TOC Entries Between Projects

    Howdy all ye grand RoboHelpers!
    I have several topics and TOC entries in a smaller project
    that I'm trying to move over into our large core help project. I've
    imported the files already, but I'm wondering if there is there a
    fast and easy way to move the TOC entries? I know I can go in and
    modify the .HHC file and copy and paste the appropriate section of
    code into my core project's hhc file, but I'm just wondering if
    there's an easier way? I tried copying and pasting from one project
    to another, but that doesn't work.

    Hi Jared
    Well, there's a huge potential wrinkle here.
    * Do the topics you have imported reside in the exact
    relative folder location in the new project? For example, if the
    old project had four topics found in a folder named "MyFolder", do
    you have a matching "MyFolder" folder in the new project? If the
    answer to that is no, then copying the TOC entries will likely
    prove futile.
    I see you have listed 7.03 as your RoboHelp version. Assuming
    you DO have a folder in the same location in the new project, you
    might be able to fudge things a bit by creating a New TOC and
    copying the one with the entries. Then using a placeholder in the
    existing TOC to insert the section you copied.
    To create a new TOC:
    Display the TOC Editing Pod.
    Ensure you are able to see all the icons in the TOC Pod
    toolbar. This may require clicking and dragging to make it wider.
    Or you may click the dark blue area on the right side of the TOC
    Editor Toolbar and the extra icons will pop down. Click the icon
    with the yellow starburst on it. This should display the "Select
    TOC" dialog.
    Click the New button.
    Type a name to reference the TOC and click to place a check
    mark in the "Copy existing Table of Contents" check box. This
    should enable the button with the ellipsis on it.
    Click the ellipsis button.
    Browse to and select the TOC you wish to copy.
    Edit the TOC so it has only the entries and arrangement you
    want.
    To insert the TOC Placeholder:
    From the main TOC, click the TOC Placeholder icon in the TOC
    editor toolbar. This icon looks like a page surrounded by two red
    brackets.
    Click the "Select Table of Contents" drop-down and choose the
    new TOC.
    Click OK.
    Arrange the TOC Placeholder where you want it in the main
    TOC.
    Hopefully this will help get you what you need... Rick

  • Right align page numbers that are to the left of TOC entries

    I posted a similar question about a year ago that I believe Harbs or Peter answered, but darned if I can find the thread. At that time they provided a script that did a GREP search, finding a sentence that starts with a digit and replacing it with a tab. I still have the script, but for some reason it is not working correctly with my new TOC layout.It should insert a tab to the left of the page number (page numbers are to the left of the TOC entries), and force the numbers to right align so that a single digit page number right aligns with the right edge of a double-digit page number.
    Find: ^(\d+)
    Change to: \t$1
    What happens in the new TOC is the script finds a digit and inserts a tab to the left of the page number. The page numbers move to the right, but they don't right align. They are further to the right, but they numbers themselves are still left aligned.
    I'm mystified as to why the script doesn't work on this new layout. I'm using CS4 now, and it still works on the old layout. There is nothing terribly different about the new layout except that the column is much narrower, and there are several threaded colums in the TOC instead of one long column, and the chapter titles don't have page numbers (but all other entries do have page numbers.)

    Peter,
    Thanks for your reply. Between the page number and the entry is an en-space.
    I started with these settings:
    I then changed the left aligned tab to a right aligned tab:
    But still no luck.
