Presumably you've given Paragraph Styles to each type of heading. Try also giving a TOC style for each.
Are you suggesting that, having followed Adobe tutorials, that this is wrong - given - in the TOC options, paragraphs are selectable and, that I have to create more TOC headings and change all of my document?
Mind you, InDesign keeps crashing on my iMac, forcing me to uninstall and start over again. Wow!
Re crashes, it would help if you stated which version of InDesign and OS and what happens.
I can't know whether you have followed the tutorial correctly or what!
(By the way, you do realise, I hope, that this is a user-to-user help forum.)
I mean no offense, just stating what is in front of me.
Thanks anyway. I'm sure, I'll eventually work it out.
Which version of InDesign and OS?
OS X 10.11.2
Adobe says "create paragraph styles and assign them to TOC, select no numbers in options". There is no mention of creating any TOC styles - in fact, looking at available styles, I can see no way of doing this.
Therefore, I appear to have followed the correct process without the desired result?
I am clearly not understanding this - the screenshots show what I have done - simply followed Adobes advice.
Did you actually set the no page number option for EVERY style you included in the TOC? You've shown only 1...
Crashing implies a problem. Have you tried trashing the prefs? See Troubleshooting 101: Replace, or "trash" your preferences
Also you should try installing the latest updated for InDesign (11.4.1) or the 11.3.0 update which you can download from All Adobe CC 2015 Updates: The Direct Download Links for Mac OS | ProDesignTools. I strongly recommend against installing 11.4.0, howver ans it was extremely buggy and fraught with its own crashing problems.
Many thanks. One of the styles wasn't set for no numbering.
Any idea how I go about I would also like to creating a navigational TOC? Is there a simple tutorial vailable?
TrainSimple.com and Lynda.com have excellent online video tutorials on creating reflowable text and fixed layout ePubs.
You can get a 10-day free trial with Lynda.com
By the way, there is an InDesign ePub forum.
The PDF Bookmarks option you already have selected does what it says, but for ePub I have no idea.
Thanks for your feedback.
I've managed to get a navigation TOC that works. The only thing I am now left with is a TOC at the end of my book. I shall have to delve a little further to find out how to remove that.
Just to be clear about ePub terminology:
The Device ToC is also known as the Navigational ToC (in the ePub file it's called toc.ncx) and it appears in the side-bar of the eReading device. You can include Landmarks under the content indicating shortcuts to items such as the Cover, Start of the Text, the Contents, and so on.
The HTML ToC (in the ePub file it's named toc.xhtml) is included in the ePub book and you need to include a ToC Style for each entry without page numbers. You place it where you want it, normally within the first couple of pages of the book.
One other thing:
It's important to validate your ePub, you can use the free IDPF validator: http://validator.idpf.org, though for anyone serious about producing ePubs for retailers, I'd strongly recommend the paid-for validator called FlightDeck: https://ebookflightdeck.com
