    Table of Contents, Separating Headings and Page Numbers

    isips Level 1

      Hi,

       

      I'm working with a table of contents in InDesign CC. Some of the headings that are included in the table will be very long and wrap to the next line. I want it to wrap before it hits the right indent tab so that there is some visual separation between the page numbers and any text. I understand I can do this manually, but I want to do it systematically as this is a template for a large number of documents.

       

      Here is what I want it to look like, the important part being that the long heading:

       

      1. Regular Heading......................................................5

          1.1  Regular sub-heading.........................................6

      2. Long Heading that hopefully

          a smart person would cut

          down anyway............................................................8

       

      As opposed to:

       

      1.      Regular Heading......................................................5

          1.1       Regular sub-heading.........................................6

      2.      Long Heading that hopefullya smart person would

                cut down anyway.....................................................8

       

      Any ideas? Is there a way to have an active table of contents in a table? Or perhaps something else? Span across a second column?
