  1. Hello, when I'm creating the TOC the page numbers are not there. What I'm missing? Thanks Mike Publisher
  2. Hi, I tried many times to create a TOC in Affinity publisher and each time, when I'm just clicking on "Insert", appears in my texte area "Non TOC entry found" even though I have differents paragraph styles used in my document. I watched many tutos but none mention this trouble....
  3. Hi, I wonder if someone can help me... It's the first time I'm using table of contents in Publisher. I have the document almost complete with a page set out ready to receive the TOC. I have the document text formatted using Text Styles as appropriate. I've drawn my text box and have then selected to insert the TOC which brings up the TOC control panel box. However, in the 'style name' section, NO styles are listed. As a result, Publisher tells me that 'no table of contents entries were found'. What am I doing wrong? How do I get the text styles from my document into the TOC control pane
  4. Here’s an idea that might be considered. It is only the older forum members who will remember that before 1980 many people subscribed to monthly magazines and kept each year’s copies in a special folder designed to stand tidily on a bookshelf. In the December edition, there was an index of the year’s contents published which listed issue, page number and for every article that had appeared during the year. I noted that every email client had a facility for the input and output of Names, Email Addresses and other information that was held. Excel too could import files of many types.
  5. When creating (and refreshing) a TOC in a text frame inherited in a page from one created in a master page, afpub goes crazy with the text styles defined for the TOC. Including if the text frame isn't connected with the rest of the text flow. Moreover, the app behaves strangely when trying to correct the style errors. Only apparent solution is to create the TOC in an independent text frame, not from an inherited. Is this a bug? If not so the app should say that this is not possible (dialog or something similar). 😐
  6. Hi everyone, I think I've run into a bug or some sort of problem with "remove line breaks " in the table of contents settings. Generally this functionality works as intended, when I manually set line breaks they are in fact removed in the table of contents. But for a new project I created headlines that are automatically numbered through the bullets and numbering settings in the text styles. And those numberes are seperated from the text by a line break. This line break is inserted in the "Text" field of the bullets and numbering settings. So it is automatically applied.
  7. Hello guys, I am an university student having my final year. During this final year students have to write their work. After writing my bachelor work using Microsoft Word I have decided to purchase Affinity Publisher. And now I am lost right on the begining. A need to create TOC (table of content) like that one on the attached file - please forgive my czech language, just needed this picture for ilustration. The main issue is that I am not able to create TOC sorted by number and "subnumber". 1 Main topic 2 Research 2.1 History 2.1.1 Europe 2.1.2 Asia
  8. Hello, I have created a title corresponding to level 1 called "Chapitre", and a title corresponding to level 2 called "Module". How can I set up these titles or the table of contents so that the order is correctly respected? This is not the case in the attached file.. Thank you for your explanations. toc.afpub
  9. I've been using Publisher for a while, loved it, but I've hit a bit of a bug as I am trying to be a bit more ambitious with some of my layout design... I have multiple text boxes for a Chapter Heading so that I can arrange parts of it on the page how I want. The Automated TOC then does the following with the Heading 1 so it creates two entries, and duplicates part of the Heading 1:
  10. Hi - Publisher newbie here, so apologies if this is not the smartest question. I have found issues on the forum and elsewhere with TOC, but have not been able to find mention of exactly this issue. I've adopted an Indesign pdf document into a working Affinity Publisher template. I've set up and are using my header and body copy styles throughout the document. However, when I come to insert a Table of Contents I get the message in the table "No table of contents entries found". I can see that this is because in my Table of Contents dialogue box my TOC 1 style has only one Style
  11. Hello, I'm not sure if this is a bug or not, but if you look at this image, you'll see that I increased the font size of items 20, 21, and 22 (it needs to be a large print book). Items 23 through 28 are the correct format, so I thought it would be okay to manually increase the size and then redefine the style. But when I did, it seems that Affinity Publisher added a tab stop between the the initial number and the description as well as between the description and the page number. If you look at the second tab stop image, you will see the text ruler with no indication of where the new
  12. I’m slowly loosing the will to live 😞😞😞 I've applied Header 1 and Header 2 paragraph styles to the document. It appears to list the table of contents in reverse order where header one style permanently appears to act as the child of header two even though I’ve adjusted the next level values to what I believe are correct. Heading One: Based on Base, Next Style [Same Style], and Next Level Heading Two. Heading Two: Based in Base, Next Style [Same Style], and Next Level [No Level] Any help is greatly appreciated. TIA
  13. I'v been testing the creation of table of content on Publisher and find it very limited on possibilities. Maybe i'm wrong, but it seems that a TOC can only be created based on page sections, and that you can only assign a unique style to the whole table. In wordprocessors and InDesign, table of content can and is usually generated based on paragraph styles, particularly Header styles. And you can assign different styles on the table based on what the original paragraph style is. This is particularly necessary on reports and technical documents, where you have different levels of
  14. Windows 10 Home 1909, Publisher When the items I want to put in a TOC have bullet points, those bullet points come through into the TOC and cause the formatting to be messy. See attached image and AFPUB file. Is this expected behaviour and, if so, how can I stop it? toc-entries-with-bullet-points-from-text.afpub
  15. I bought my third Affinity product a few days ago (GREAT, AREN'T THEY!), and I'm right at it with creating my first white paper. I have watched all the video tutorials, but I cannot for the life of me remember where I saw (indeed IF I saw) how to format a Table of Content. I went back to the TOC video tutorial, but all the presenter showed us was two TOC styles, but nothing about how you actually tweak them and nothing about how to add a dotted line in a Table Of Content between a content (Heading 1) and the page number. I thought maybe the answer lay in the Paragraph > Tab Stops
  16. Dear all, how can I create a TOC that displays the title and subtitle of a chapter? I want these two headlines to appear in different styles in the publication. The result should be something like: Author's name: Title. Subtitle ................. page n° The integration of the author's name is the next issue, it is by now at the end of the chapters... Any hints for me? Thank you in advance 🙂
  17. Hey there, how is it possible to assign different styles to an toc depending on what styles it had before. Like headings get one, and subtitles another one? Thanks for your help, Lars
  18. Create table of contents Set it so that the page numbers show first Select the page number Change the font Change the color. ---> Color change is being ignored. See video. Screen_Recording_2020-03-09_at_14_46_54.mov
  19. It would be helpful if we could have the option to have a TOC field be composed of the associated page numbers without the accompanying text. This would allow us to have a TOC field that is only the numbers which could be formatted a different way from the associated heading text but it could be updated without the need to reformat any style. This would be useful for TOC that need to have the page numbers a different style than the heading text. We could simply have a field for the #s and one for the text and then update both of the fields and everything would be good to go. As of now aft
  20. Somewhere AP pulls TOC entries with an underline. Where from I dunno. Only if you set to "none" and enable it in the style properties it actually gets turned off. Screen_Recording_2020-03-09_at_15_09_44.mov
  21. I am using Publisher on desktop, Windows 10. I pasted the contents of a book created elsewhere into Publisher and used the text autoflow feature to have it expand to as many pages as needed. Formatted everything with Chapter Title, pics, etc. Inserted 2 new blank pages near beginning of document to create TOC and inserted TOC, which doesn't fit on one page. Clicked the chain icon and linked it to the next text box on the next page to have the TOC overflow - which it does nicely. All the rest of my pages then go blank. The correct number of pages is still there, but none of the conten
  22. It's been a while since i haven't posted here. (Doesn't mean i haven't read some threads from time to time). I've dived into Publisher ocean, and i'm trying to push it's limits. And i've come to an end concerning TOC. I'm trying to create a "design" TOC. With a multitude of styles and graphics (see image from my "design") : And now i'm looking forward to achieve what i have'nt found myself (so here i am). See where i've managed to get to, by tweaking TOC styles : I'm still looking for a way to add "0" before my numbers (as in my design screenshot); As well a
  23. Is there a way to keep all of the formatting on a TOC text area after you update the TOC content? When I update the TOC area it resets any new tabs and specific character formatting I have applied to the page numbers. Also, is there possibly a way to have the TOC page numbers appear without the associated text? Thanks!
  24. I have a fairly large table of contents (2 column, 1 page) with maybe ~100 entries (20 chapters, the rest level 2) in a PDF that has 164 pages. About 95% of the hyperlinks in the TOC in the generated PDF go to the correct page. However, there's a handful that go to the next page (TOC page + 1) instead of page 86 or 87 or whatever it says in the TOC. This works for almost everything and requires me to click on each specific link to make sure it's valid or not. This is another deal breaker (besides the ability to generate PDF bookmarks from TOC or header styles or whatever) for digital
  25. Is it possible for the TOC entries to automatically include the paragraph numbering of the referenced paragraphs? For example, in my second attached image I have the paragraphs numbered as I want them and it would be nice if those numbers are automatically brought across into the TOC, as in my first attached image. I made the first attached image by manually adding the numbering to the TOC styles but I am wondering if there is a simpler way.
