The first time I did Copy Special as Table of Contents, and pasted it into a document, it had each line indented to match my folder and subfolder structure - perfect. Now when I do it, it’s listing every document as a single flat list of lines, no indents - I can’t figure out what I’m doing differently. What’s the right way to generate a table of contents that will preserve the hierarchical structure of the sections?
Are you referring to what you get when you compile or when you paste? For the latter, I can’t think of anything that would cause the result you are describing. Even in cases where you shrink the editor width sufficiently to break the display of tabs, the lines will still be indented. So do you mean when you compile? If so, you may not have checked of the “Compile As-Is” flag for the ToC document. Let us know more precisely what you are doing, step by step, if it still isn’t working the way you expect.

Just in Scrivener itself (paste). After compile, it actually does fit them on same line, as it should. In Scrivener, it pastes looking like the page number will be on the next line after the section title.

I select sections, Copy Special as Table of Contents, and pasted it into a blank document in the binder. What I see is the attached screenshot.

There are no tab stops or indents on your ruler, so the formatting codes within the text have nothing to work against. You should have little triangle markers above the text in the ruler area. What happens if you right-click within the ruler area and add some?
Aha, that did it!! I don’t know why that page didn’t have a triangle mark on the right side of the ruler, but that fixed it.
