Did you create and assign new paragraph styles to the TOC elements themselves?
Yes, new paragraph styles have been created and applied specifically to the
TOC styles. These paragraph styles are used for nothing else, and vary
simply in character font size.
Sorry, that should say TOC dialog...
If the TOC listings generated from TOC Location(TOC Global) are not formatted using TOC Primary (TOC Global) the most likely causes are either applied character styles or local formatting overrides in the paragraph itself that was pulled in. Those will trump the paragraph style in the TOC as well.
Thanks for your reply.
Unfortunately I had previously had the Paragraph Style of the output set as
the original paragraph style it was pulled from. The results were the
same, even if I change those paragraph styles, and have also confirmed no
local style overrides are applied There is certainly a default setting
somewhere that is having this undesirable effect... Any other checks to
It's possible that the file(s) are corrupt in some minor way, or your preferences, but this seems less likely than a formatting problem in the text itself. Nevertheless, take a look at Remove minor corruption by exporting and Replace Your Preferences. If this is a Book made from a collection of individual .indd files, I'd try the .idml method, save as completely new filenames, and create a new .indb file to add the new .indds.
It's alos important that your InDesing is up to date. You didn't mention the version, but check to be sure you have the latest patch installed.
Finally, this is a situation where seeing the file itself would be helpful. I'll send you an upload link if you may use, or not.
