I'm using FrameMaker 2019 and I'm encountering a strange issue. When I generate the TOC for my book, all entries in the TOC are duplicated, meaning the elements are listed properly and then they are all listed again. The first set of entries includes right tab top and leaders, then immediately following this, everything is listed again, this time without the leaders or tab stop.
The only thing that I can think of that might be related is that I recently started getting unavailable font errors every time I update the book. TO remedy this, I had to replace courier with courier new in my template. I don't see how the two could be related, but its also a recent problem.
I'll continue to troubleshoot it, but if anyone can think of a reason as to why this might be happening, I'd appreciate it.
One thing I've noticed is that when I select the "first" TOC, everything is listed as the "body" paragraph format whereas in the second half, all entries have their correct format.
If you're working in unstructured Frame, I'd check the reference page for TOC entries and make sure I didn't have the TOC formats listed twice with different formatting.
To expand on Lin's solution, check the TOC reference page for paragraphs containing
One of these lines is likely formatted with the tag you are putting into the TOC.
However, the info should only appear once, regardless of how many times the paragraph tag is used on the reference page.
Try right-clicking on your TOC in the book file to Set up TOC.
Do you have two similar tags listed in the setup?
Thanks Matt. Things improved when I started working with these lines in the TOC reference pages. Out of curiosity, I currently have three instances of the same tag in my TOC reference page. I've been trying to figure out why. I think it has something to do with the fact that I had two instances of the same paragraph style (one with a space in the name and one without). I deleted one of them but it still remains in the TOC reference page. Is it safe to delete these lines in the reference page or is there a better way to do it?
If it's not being used in the TOC, you can delete it from the reference page.
