In InDesign CC I have created a 25 chapter book and a TOC as a separate chapter in the beginning. The TOC is created as desired. Now I want to export that book to ePub and create a navigational TOC in it. First of all, the dropdown box does not show my saved TOC-style, only the Default. It only shows that TOC style when I export only the document "Table of Contents".
I check the box "Make text anchors in the source paragraphs" but the export ends with error messages of "missing text anchors" and the navigational TOC shows the file names instead of my chapter names.
Do these nice functions of exporting and creating text anchors and navigational TOC only work when the whole book is in one single document?
I would very much appreciate some hint as to how I can get this to work.
If you're not seeing your TOC Style in the drop down then the most likely reason is that you have not synchronized all your styles across the book.
In particular, the document in the book designated as the "Style Source" is where we look for the TOC Style and Metadata.
In the TOC Style you need to check the option "Include Book Documents" - then the anchors will be created across the book.
