I'm currently working on a proposal document and I wanted to include a table of contents for the various sections of the document (something that I've done numerous time without any issues).
However, this time for my section headings and sub headings I'm using a numbered list type in the paragraph styles settings so I get automated sequential numbers before each heading and sub heading like so:
1. First section
2. the second section
2.1. a sub section
2.2. another sub section
3. blah blah blah
So far so good, but when I come to generate the TOC the strangest thing happens, it ignores the text after the section numbers. It still outputs the page number reference, but my headings are no where to be seen. So my table of contents looks like this:
1. page 1
2. page 2
2.1. page 5
2.2. page 6
3. page 8
Any ideas where I might be going wrong?
Are you using ID's built-in paragragh style-based TOC module, or cross-references? It looks to me more like cross-refs and you need to change the format to include the paragraph text.
Ah, that's where I was going wrong!
Yes, I had 'numbered paragraphs' setting on 'include numbers only'.
Thanks, that was driving me crazy!
