    CS5 TOC display/styles issue

    Lobolance Level 1

      Hi-

       

      I have a new tech manual. I've created three paragraph styles for the body headers, using the Bullets function; they work just fine in the test.

       

      I have mapped those styles to TOC styles; the topmost header maps to one toc style; the other two map to the same toc style. Here however is what I get (more or less, this is a type in not a direct copy, as the formatting doesn't copy):

       

      1 (tab)RxT 10GE User’s Manual ......................................9

      1.1(tab)The System Desktop .......................................... 9

       

      1.2(tab)LEDs ............................................................... 11

      1.3(tab)Important Information ......................................... 12

       

      1.3.1 ...............(tab)...........Warnings and Cautions (tab) .. 12

      1.3.2.......(tab).......Tips on RxT & this Help System(tab)     12

       

      1.3.3.......(tab)........FCC Information (tab)                          13

       

       

      1.4(tab)Unpacking........................................................... 13

       

       

      1.3.1/.2/.3 have the same TOC style as 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 and 1.4. In the body text, the paragraph styles they come from are based on the same bullets list. I have no idea where the long leder before the name and the blank spaces after (in the 1.3.1 etc) come from.

       

      Help!

       

      Thanks-

      Lance

          My bet would be the tabs are actually part of the original text.

            Interesting thought.

             

            Following up: I've just made a Table of Figures, and have Figure 1....(tab).......Line LEDs   9

             

            ...so I went into the text and look at the style. The Figure Caption is a bullets/numbering style, so the phrase Figure x pops up automatically, and I just write in the caption text. So there're no tabs possible there (unless they're inherent to the default bullets and numbering??).

             

            On the original table of contents, I found that messing with the indent let me get things properly onto one line, though indented a couple of spaces. I can live with that, but I haven't figured out the basic problem.

             

            Thanks for your time!
