Check out my LiveTOC script, under the scripting tab on
It's a semi-automated solution, and currently only works within one
document. There is a free trial, though, so give it a spin, and if you
need it expanded in some way, let me know. I've been looking for an
excuse to work on it a little more...
Thank you, Ariel, and I will check it out. Thanks so very much!
No problems. I'd be interested to have your feedback.
Can you let me know if your script could be useful to me? Here's my situation:
I have a ~250 page document with a lot of named cross references.
I want to generate a formatted list at the end of the document of all these cross references, in the order they appear in the text, in a format like this:
P<page no>, <name of reference>: Note about this cross reference.
(where the <page no> and <name of reference> are drawn from the text anchor in the main text of the document, and the note about the reference is manually typed in to the reference list.)
I don't think that the LiveTOC script specifically will be helpful to
you in your case. But what you describe does sound very scriptable. It's
a bit late in my part of the world to get into this now, but if you want
help, try starting a new thread here with perhaps a little more detail
of what you're trying to do. Maybe someone will bite.
Appreciate the prompt reply, and good to know that it sounds scriptable!
I'll start a new thread and see how I go.
Thanks again, and sorry to crash your thread Michael!
