Do you have a page break that ePub can identify at the end of the page before the TOC?
You're describing something I'm not yet familiar with, so it is probably the answer. How can I add that page break?
This is one way to do it:
1) Create a new paragraph style
2) In Basic Character Formats/Size enter 0.1 pt (that's the minimum) so it won't show if you are using this same file for printing
3) In Character Color choose None
4) In Export Tagging select: Split Document (EPUB only)
Now you can create a force break at the last line of the page before the TOC and apply this paragraph style to it. This should create the page break you need.
I think basically you're doing it correctly. I've run into the same problem. What I found is that the heading in the PLACED table of contents (placed by using the Layout > Table of Contents feature and placing it onto the page) will not work for making a page break. It's a special kind of object because it can be updated by the Update Table of Contents command.
You have to do a workaround: You need to create "Table of Contents" in a separate frame and apply the TOC Heading paragraph style.
In the TOC style, DON'T include content for the TOC title. Look at the screen captures below of my TOC.
By separating the "Contents" into its own frame it works in EPUB:
That worked. Brilliant! Thanks very much!
