Multiple Tables of Contents

Jun 25, 2012 5:44 AM

Tags: #toc #bookmark_toc

I'm working on a publication that has a table of contents, a list of figures and a list of tables.

 

I don't seem to be able to get the entries 'List of figures' and 'List of tables' to be included in the table of contents. Can anyone help with this?

 

I also want the figure and table titles to be included as entries under 'List of figures' and a 'List of tables' in the interactive PDF I generate.

 

(I'm using ID 5.5)

    Are you creating the lists of figures and tables before the main TOC? They won't be included if they aren't on a page. And do their titles have a paragraph style applied that's inthe included list for the TOC?

    I would probably add non-printing frames with the titles of the tables that aren't appearing so you can still update the tables themselves when things change. Those non-printing headings can be included in your regular TOC.

     

    Can you show us some screen shot of what these tables look like in ID and the result in Acrobat?

    OK, so I think you are saying the problem is in the presntation of ht elist of bookmarks on the right side of the screen capture there. Is that right?

     

    I really know nothing about PDF bookmarks other than you can include them when making a TOC, and even less about what happens in Interactive PDF. YOu might want to ask about this over in the Acrobat forum.

    Now that I understand it's the PDF bookmarks you're having a problem with, I agree with Peter.

     

    There's no concept of nested TOCs when creating PDF bookmarks. You'll need to create the subbookmarks for the secondary TOCs within Acrobat manually, I'm afraid.
