When creating a TOC as per the Affinity tutorial video, I have found that I cannot space the TOC items out as I would like.

If I drag the box in line with the para above it sends the page number to the next line.

but if I drag the text box in from the left, it puts it on the same line.

Is this a bug or should I be setting this up differently?

Hi gumbo23,

                  I don't quite know why your page numbers are being moved down 1 line with your reduction of width shown.  I have found that that only occurs in my table of contents when the text frame is reduced in width to LESS THAN THE WIDTH OF THE TEXT as shown in these three examples

Original TOC in text frame                                        TOC text frame width reduced                         TOC text frame reduced to less than text length.

Perhaps someone more expert than me could suggest a remedy for you.

Are you using the current version? I recall some problems which were similar to this in earlier versions. 1.7.0.257 is what I have and I have the same result as @PMan.
