Framemaker table of contents not updating

Rated 4.16/5 based on 701 customer reviews

For instructions on the basics of inserting a TOC, see Word MVP Shauna Kellys article How to create a table of contents in Microsoft Word.

If you have never used a TOC before, I highly recommend that you read Shaunas article before reading this one.

If your authoring and publishing environment includes these two tools, you have multiple options of incorporating their strengths into your workflow.

You can map Frame Maker formats directly to Robo Help styles in a standard CSS that ensures consistency in appearance and behavior across the entire project.

Adobe Technical Communication Suite includes Adobe Captivate and Adobe Photoshop—tools that you can use to include rich multimedia capabilities in your output formats.

In addition, you can use Adobe Acrobat to set up shared reviews and consolidate review comments and edits.

You can author in Frame Maker and publish richly formatted PDF for print and online viewing.

To see the outline level of any given paragraph, look at the upper right corner of the Paragraph dialog. The Paragraph dialog showing outline level The outline level of paragraphs in Words built-in heading styles cannot be changed; if you look at the Paragraph dialog for a paragraph in one of these styles, youll see that the outline level box is disabled.

(Although the outline level of the style itself can be changed, I dont recommend this.) The outline level for any other style or paragraph can be changed, so that theoretically it is possible to have paragraphs in the same style (Normal, for example) with different outline levels.

By default, Word creates a TOC based on Headings 13.

It also includes other built-in styles that have an outline level of 1, 2, or 3, such as the Title (Level 1) and Subtitle (Level 2) styles.
