    Update table of contents (TOC) on open?

    Owen Linzmayer Level 1

      I have several hundred InDesign CC documents, each containing a single table of contents (among other content). Is there any way for me to have InDesign automatically update the TOC when I open a document? Photoshop has Script Event Manager which allows me to set up scripts to run based upon actions in the app. Is there something similar for InDesign?

       

      Currently I open the document, go to page 1, select the TOC text frame, then choose Layout > Update Table of Contents.

       

      No big deal doing this once in a while, but as I said, I have hundreds of documents and don't want to be burdened to remember to update the TOC every time, nor go through all the steps, over and over.

       

      Any help which can be provided is most welcome.
