Table of contenst

Tags: #table #of #paragraph #styles #contents

I have nearly 100 different product in my catalog that are placed in three categories. Every product is titled with different color, but all other options are the same. How can i add 3 paragraph styles if every of my items has different color in his title. Is there any way that I could make table of contenst without adding 100 paragraph styles for every one of my item titles?

    You write about 3 different colors to 100 different products. So I suppose that you need 3 different paragraph styles and not 100.

    Create these 3 paragraph styles and create 3 entries in your TOC definition. Create also one entry style if you will that all 3 entries look the same, create 3 if you want them look different.


    If you want to apply the same color of a paragraph to the TOC then you need only to create a character style for each color. Nothing should be specified except the character color in this style. Now you can use only 1 entry for these paragraphs because the character styles comes into the toc unchanged.

    Do you want to have the toc entries the same color? Use a characterstyle.

    No, use also a character style, but put the toc in a seperate file in a book. In that indd file of the toc redefine the character styles with the same name but no color definition.

    No, not importing. The toc needs to be a seperate file from the same book. Only so it is possible to have diferent character style definition for the same style.

    Use one paragraph style, but set up 50 Character styles that contain ONLY character color.
