Can you show us the frame edges and threading, please?
thank you for answering. Here is a picture of the text frames. The left and the right text frame are not connected. The left text frame begins on the page before and floats into the left column...
FYI this is just a sample file.
A possible workaround:
If I put some empty paragraphs into the "over text" and don't expand the text frame the numbering is some how correct. But then i have an error in the preflight...
yeah I tried it a lot of times with different files.
The problem is not related to incopy-files. It also happens when you use normal textframes.
There is another workaround to avoid this problem, but this workaround just causes other problems.
I've already checked all the formats and tried to figure out the reason for this problem, but without success.
Thanks for the links, I will try them and give some feedback in case it works.
I'm dealing with this problem since ID CS4 and was sure this bug will be fixed with the following updates, unfortunately it hasn't happened so far. Right now I'm using ID CS6.
Can you show us a screen shot of your TOC set up with extended options when you select the second level headline.
I think the only solution will be to thread both stories into a single one.
You could try to use the Articles Panel, but I doubt that it will work.
Well, unfortunately putting everything in one text frame is no solution for this use case
The trouble-shooting links provided by Mr. Spier don't lead to a better result, neither the Articles Panel, but thanks alot for answering and trying to solve the problem together.
But in general I think it's a shame that there's no way to contact Adobe about this problem directly.
I already tried to ask via E-Mail but never got an answer - support by phone is for ID not available.
It would be way easier to explain the problem and the context by phone than describing it by text in a forum.
