Hi there!

Somehow I don't get the table of contents to work properly in a document... The headings are displayed but the page numbers are not. I am sure it is me doing something wrong. But what?

In order to demonstrate my issue I've created a sample document (see below, made with APub 1.8.3.641). It comprises a couple of articles with just two text styles each: one for the heading, one for the body copy.

When I insert the toc in an empty text frame I get a list of all articels as expected. But no page numbers at all (see screenshot). I've tried to insert extra tab stops and changed their position but to no avail.

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong here?

Thanks, Volker

Fascinating! Now it works. Thanks a lot, GarryP!

But why isn't the option turned on by default once you click on a text style? I mean, what sense does make a table of contents without page numbers?

Cheers,
Volker

They're useful in PDFs, where you might just click on the chapter/section title to navigate. Not so useful in a physical book, though, so I'm also puzzled why they're not on by default.
