I’d like a Toc after my front matter in my e-book. I’d like it generated and not hand crafted after Edit > Copy Special > Copy Documents as Structured Link List. Indenting is wished for and the Automatic Numbering before the titles should show.
I’ve used these settings:
The document is an empty document with the title "Contents ".
It’s in the Contents of the compilation.
It has a Content Type and a Content Layout with the Content Types “Title” and “Text” ticked. I’ve Assigned the Contents Section Layout to the Contents Section Type.
There’s a Page Break in the Separator’s tab for the Contents Section Layout.
The Toc title is to be “Contents”.
and the Result is: Figure 6.
The Placeholders PDF states this use of the <$toc> Placeholder:
Used when compiling ebook formats only.
If the <$toc> placeholder appears in an otherwise blank document when compiling to an ebook format and
if that document’s title matches the title assigned to the table of contents (in the Compile options)
(Tip: Set up your Compile options so that there is a page break before this document and the document’s formatting is not overridden.)
then this document will be replaced with an automatically generated table of contents.
This allows the user to determine where the automatically-generated table of contents should be placed in cases where it is not wanted at the very start of the ebook.
I’d appreciate any advise on why this doesn’t work…
