This has become very confusing to me. All I want to do is make a simple interactive TOC. Just want the listings on my TOC to go to the corresponding pages. Can someone explain this to a total dummy? Seems like it should be simple, but I'm just not getting it for some reason.
That is not enough info. What is the intended format for the document?
Click Layout > Table of Contents, and after spending much time tinkering in that dialog box, make sure you tick ON the box that is labeled "Create PDF Bookmarks" and I also usually tick ON the bottom box "Make text anchor in source paragraph"
