InDesign cs6, windows XP
I have a book created with 16 documents (so far). I tried creating a Table of Contents (TOC); it did not go well.
In the document I have set for the TOC (in the book), the TOC panel opened after the book chapters were scanned. I selected the Paragraph Styles to include in the TOC from the list of styles discovered in the documents. I selected OK. I got the Place Text icon. I placed the TOC and got... nothing. (Well, I did get the title "Contents.") I had expected a bit more.
What am I missing?
Argh! Yes, I had missed a step: I had not enabled "Include Book Documents."
