I'm working with InDesign CS6 on Windows 7 Pro 64-bit
This is an old, legacy document. Today, I needed to remove two pages, so of course, I need to update my table of contents and index. I had no problems with the index - it regenerated just fine. The TOC is another matter. I clicked Layout > Update Table of Contents. I got the message stating that the contents was updated. However, what actually happened was the TOC text vanished! And, it actually is gone because I can see two empty paragraph markers where the TOC used to be. I've tried regenerating it instead of doing the update. Same result - it's gone.
I'm still fairly new to InDesign, so I'm not sure what I can do to troubleshoot this. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Sounds like ID doesn't think there are any paragraphs with the style names you've selected for inclusion.
But I'm not a fan of direct conversion of legacy files because these sorts of things, or worse, happen a lot. Try this: Remove minor corruption by exporting
That worked! Thank you.
This was a book, so I did have to export each file in the book individually, and then recreate the book. But, I can generate my TOC again.
