If you override the header onto the document page it should appear in the TOC.
Thanks, this sounds like just what I'm after. However…
I feel pretty silly asking this, but I can't understand the Adobe Help files on overriding a master item.
It lists a two step process:
- Make sure the master item can be overridden -this seems to be fine. After selecting the inserted File Name in the master I can see a tick next to Allow Master Item Overrides On Selection in the Pages panel menu.
- Override specific master items on a document page - this is where I get lost.
Firstly I can't select the items on a regular (non-master) page. Am I meant to select them on the master page?
Secondly the help file simply says "Change the selected master items as desired." How do I change them. There's no explicit instruction, and I can't for the life of me work it out.
More generally (if this does happen on a master), do I need to make this change on every document in the book, or can I simply make the change on the Style Source and then synchronise the remaining files?
To override, hold down Ctrl (Windows)/Cmd (Mac) + Shift and click on the object. You would have to do this for each one individually.
Thanks Peter. I just read another answer you've given along a similar topic and realised I'm incapable of following basic instructions.
My initial tests are encouraging. Feels like a bit of a hack to achieve what I want to achieve, but much better than manually creating a TOC.
Thanks once again. I (obviously) would never have thought of this myself, and my initial handful of Google searches didn't unearth this approach.
