  1. Hello, when I'm creating the TOC the page numbers are not there. What I'm missing? Thanks Mike Publisher 1.7.2.471
  2. 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 publishers - when the TOC hyperlinks doesn't work! And there's no bookmarks! So users reading large documents will get a subpar PDF experience! Also, what's also annoying is that I need to insert a column break to prevent orphan chapter/section (the last entry on col 1 is a chapter title with it's subsections at top of col 2, so I insert a col break to make it look correct), then I get the pop-up saying "TOC has changed" on every.single.export. Even though nothing has change. I just added a col break inside of the TOC. Edit: Added image from Acrobat Pro that shows the hyperlink properties. This hyperlink property is for the chapter "Sembia" and page "88" link below it, but it says Page 4 (TOC is on Page 3).
  3. 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.
  4. When I generate a TOC, heading 2 does not indent under heading 1. How can I correct this?
  5. Ok. So i managed to get the TOC spanning two pages as its become too long for one page. But is it possible to set that the second page start with the style that I have marked? Right now it looks a bit messy as the second page does not look good as a continue of first page. How can I make this look better? Thanks!
  6. Publisher continues to crash when I attempt to delete a TOC style. Luckily Publisher has a recovery file. I have been working all day, multitasking actually, so resources are slim at best, but I thought I'd mention this before I leave for the weekend, maybe see if someone else has experienced this as well. My hope is that once I shut down and come back Monday things will be back to normal (crossing fingers). I have a crash report if that is of any use to anyone.
  7. ... while preserving the correct TOC hierarchy ? Let say I create 2 heading styles based on a Group style called "Headings" (obviously ) with a particular font. I then create a third heading style that is based on the font of my Base group style (different from the font of the 'Headings' group style)... and I want this specific 3rd heading below the Heading 2 of my Heading Group style in the TOC. I don't see how to precise the hierarchy of the headings. Thanks, P.
  8. 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 content that can be on the same page and that must be included on the TOC, and visually different. On Publisher you can't create subsections nor create a TOC with multiple items on the same page. Is limited to a simple section title (As you can only assign a unique section per page). I've attached the TOC of a recent report I made on InDesign, that I can't reproduce on Publisher. On Indesign is automaticaly generated based on the paragraph styles (No need to create sections), and can create levels of content by detecting multiple paragraph styles, no problem if there are multiple instances on the same page, and also you can assign a paragraph style for each level of TOC. Hope I'm wrong and there is something that is hiding from me, but by now, the TOC of Publisher seems only usable to simple (very) basic chapter books. Making a report TOC like the attached one will mean doing the TOC manually (ouch!)
  9. Hi Forum, I can't figure out how to keep the paragraph style of a table of contents text box, when it updates. I want the font to be Arial 14 Bold, but on updating it resets to Arial 12 regular. How do you set the TOC text frame to a specific text style? Best MortenWB
  10. hi, I have created a well working TOC and even the Links are working after exporting the file to PDF. But, and there is always a but; the TOC isn't transferred as a PDF - TOC. Only "miniatures" pictures are exported and automatically inserted, but the Table of Content not. What PDF would also supports. Any advice? Maybe I just haven't found the on click or so. But this would be a crucial feature, especially when designing catalogs and bigger magazines. Hoping for an advice. Cheers, thanks and greetings from Salzburg, Austria Gerhard

    TOC mishap

    APUB 1.7.0.257, OS X 10.13.6 I have a 2-page spread of some 140 pages so far. The setup for pages is a master page is assigned with page numbers and section names. Then a picture frame with a photo of lowered opacity is applied either to a single page or spanning two pages. This frame is arranged "to back" so that the master page numbers and sections will appear, and then other smaller picture frames with 100% opacity photos, including text frames are placed on top of all of that. I inserted a TOC on page 3. Then the weirdness happened. The pages after the TOC page were affected: the recto pages all had a full-sized picture frame with a picture that had been moved to the "back" so that the master page numbers and sections would show. Note that each separate verso/recto page had its own "at back" picture frame with photo and only the recto pages had this problem. On about 50 of those pages all of the full-sized picture frames had been moved one step to the front - thereby hiding the master's page numbers, etc. Then, in another section of pages following those, the full-sized "at back" picture frames were single frames that spanned two pages (verso and recto). The smaller photos on the verso pages were moved back one level (I think "to back") and had the same (incorrect) opacity as the background picture frame. This caused the separate photos on that page to be grayed-out behind the full-page picture frame. Each of these problems had to be corrected manually - selecting the page picture frame and moving "to back" or moving the verso page picture frame out of the way and moving the smaller photos "to front" then moving the full-page frame back into place. In yet another section that follows, the verso small picture frame photos and text had all been moved "to back" and were hidden rather than grayed-out. Finally, the last section of some 8 pages was fine - no changes or problems.
  12. I saved an own table of contents layout. When I tried to delete it, Publisher crashed.
  13. When I add a table of contents to any document, I can't export or print. Clicking on either Export... or Print... immediately freezes Publisher and I can do nothing at all. I have to kill this instance of Publisher using Task Manager and then re-launch it to do anything further. I can consistently recreate this any time I have a master page containing text frames. If there is no TOC, I can export and print as expected. As soon as I add a TOC those functions cease to operate. Steps to recreate: Create a new file using the default settings. Add a text frame to the master spread. On any page, insert a TOC by double-clicking in the text frame and selecting Text > Table of Contents > Insert Table of Contents Click File > Export... or File > Print... Publisher freezes completely This is not happening if I leave the master alone and just create a text frame on a page and put the TOC in that. I am on Windows 10 using beta 1.7.0.227. I haven't used any previous beta versions so I don't know if this used to work or not.

    TOC bug

    I have been using the beta to set up a book for Amazon as a practice test and to learn the software and noticed that when I deleted a chapter heading that was a text object and added the heading in the body text, both came up in the refreshed TOC. So ti seems like it remembered the deleted heading somehow.
  15. In a long text document I have a number of different image types I wish to caption. I want to be able to automatically number these — for example: Figure 1. Lorem ipsum. Figure 2. Alice went down. Chart 1. Latin alphabet. Chart 2. Characters in Alice. Map 1. Holy Roman Empire. Map 2. The rabbit hole. Question 1.) I am trying to create named text styles for these: Font, size, style, automatic numbers (presumably based on whether I name my style Figure Title, Chart Title, Map Title), etc. How do I get the word "Figure" or "Chart" or "Map" to appear before the automatic number? It seems no matter what I do, the sequence is: 1. Figure. ; 1. Chart. ; etc.. I do not see where or how to add an automatic field with the necessary label before an auto number, then to be followed by individual identifying text in each caption title, terminated by a period. I would usually be adding longer explanatory text after the period, but in a different style such as Caption Body. That is, my actual caption (title + body) might be: Map 2. The rabbit hole. Map and cross-section showing the various locations Alice entered, including citations for actual chapters in Carroll's book. Question 2.) If I am able to create these styles, then what is the procedure to create a "List of Figures", "List of Charts", "List of Maps" — with page numbers — (in addition to my TOC created by Heading styles) at the beginning of my long document? I would presume this might be in the TOC creation panel, based on searching for the 3 text styles I created when adding the image titles. The longer explanatory text, being in a different style (Caption Body), should not appear in these lists of image titles. I have not found this addressed in the manual. I think my answer is already in there, but I do not see where/how. I need help with some sort of step-by-step process; I am clearly missing something. Thanks for this very interesting program.
  16. I would like to be able to update page numbers on my TOC without deleting line breaks and interruptions inserted manually. It would be quite useful when working on a TOC split in multiple text frames for composition purposes. It could be an additional "soft" TOC update that just reloads page numbers and section names without updating the whole TOC.
  17. result crash allways. If i change in each style of paragraph, its OK.
