I am working on a book where each chapter is a separate .indd file. These files are assembled in a single .indb file to make the final book. However, I am considering grouping these chapter-documents (there are 68 in total!) into 4-5 sections. Thus, the TOC would look something like this:
Section 1: Section 1 title
Chapter 1: Chapter 1 title
Chapter 2: Chapter 2 title
Chapter 3: Chapter 3 title
Section 2: Section 1 title
Chapter 4: Chapter 4 title
Chapter 5: Chapter 5 title
Chapter 6: Chapter 6 title
Chapter 7: Chapter 7 title
Is this possible? I am sure it is but don't know how. From what I have gathered reading Adobe help documents, Section markers are used within a long document to designate different parts of the text. Since in my case each document is a single chapter, how can I make sections behave as proper "sections" instead of "sub-chapters"?
I have the same requirements. Has anyone solved this problem?
This is strictly a matter of how you create the headings in the text and the styles you assign to them.
TOC picks up paragraph styles, so the Section titles need to have a different style applied than the chapter titles. If the prefixes don't appear in the text, they can be added in the TOC by creating Numbered List paragraph styles to use for the listings.
Thanks! This appears to solve my problem. I have no way to mark the answer as Correct. Perhaps it is because I did not pose the original question.
