Not using the regular TOC feature. With that you get the whole paragraph.
One alternate method is to include a non-printing tag frame on the page with just the text you want, and assign that a unique paragraph style that can be included in the TOC.
Another method that some users like is to use cross-references. These also have the advantage of updating automatically if things move.
I like the auto-updating feature of the second option.
So that I understand, you're suggesting I create a hyperlink destination on the text to display in the TOC (right-click --> Interactive --> New Hyperlink Destination), and then manually insert a cross-reference to that hyperlink destination in my TOC (Type --> Hyperlinks & Cross-References --> Insert Cross-References --> Link to: Text Anchor)?
Correct. You have to build the TOC manually this way, the first time (and make any additions/subtractions manually), but once the links are make they should update. YOu might want to make a regular TOC for reference at the end and put it on the pasteboard to check against.
One word of warning, though I would not do this with a book file where you have to link to different documents. Inter-document cross-refs have a reputation for being very fragile.
Thanks Peter. This is a good workaround until Adobe enables users to automatically include tagged terms directly in a TOC.
