Above is a screenshot of the TOC file in my book. The Head5 entries are in a different font, and the page numbers are not right-aligned with a lead.
I was able to fix the font issue using Character Designer and then "Update All" in Paragraph Designer.
In order to right-align the page numbers, I've tried clicking in one of the Head5 lines, clicking "Right Tab" on the Paragraph Formatting toolbar (3rd arrow below), and then clicking below the ruler across the top directly underneath the rightmost triangle (shown below). However, nothing changes when I take these steps. I was planning on making those changes and then choosing "Update All," but I'm not seeing anything change on the page. I then tried manually right-aligning the page numbers by typing ". . . . . ." all the way across the page in front of the numbers and then using "Update All," but the dots disappear and the numbers move back to the left after I update my book.
I've also tried applying the same tab stop used for the other TOC entries in Paragraph Designer to the Head5 entries, but that isn't doing the trick, either.
Could anyone help me figure out how to get my Head5 TOC entry page numbers on the right side of the page with the same dotted lead as the other entries?
You will need to add the tab on the TOC reference page first. As a default, Fm uses a space between <$paratext> and <$pagenum>. Once you get to the reference page, click each line until you find the Head5TOC paragraph. Delete the space, add the tab and then format as usual, and update your book. You should be good to go, but let us know if you need more help.
The screenshot above is of the only place on the 15 reference pages that a Head5TOC paragraph appeared. The screenshots below are places where Head1TOC - Head4TOC paragraphs appeared, but no Head5TOC.
I deleted the space between <$paratext> and <$pagenum> from the Head5TOC paragraph shown above and then tried adding a tab on the reference page in all of the ways that I described in my original post. However, the only change I'm able to produce is that the Head5 page numbers on the body pages of my TOC are now right next to the Head5 titles (as opposed to having one space between the two).
I think I'm doing something wrong when trying to add the tab. Do you know what that might be?
If I remember correctly, your document has multiple, extra, unused reference pages. This is where you want to delete the space and add the tab, then format as usual.
The line inside the orange square in your image is a Head4TOC paragraph in my document. I added the tab to this line and then added a new line and marked it Head5TOC. I added the tab to the Head5TOC line, formatted the text, clicked "Update All," and updated my book. However, the body page now looks the same as it did in the screenshot from my original post (one space between the Head5 page number and the Head5 title).
Below is a screenshot of the changes I made to the reference page.
Can you share it with me? That would be quickest at this point.
Thank you for sharing the file. This file was a little tough to straighten out.
Here's what I'd do:
Thank you so much for this answer!
Everything went well until I made it to Step 5. For some reason, when I choose "Continue" for the Head4TOC and Head5TOC lines, nothing changes on the page. Nothing changes after choosing "Update All," either. Below is a screenshot of the reference page and a screenshot of the body page. Do you have any guesses as to why only the Head4TOC and Head5TOC lines are not cooperating?
In your screen shot you have two tab stops in Basic properties. One at 5.691 and a second at 6.5". Delete the one at 5.691 and update all, removing overrides and update your book.
Thank you so much, Barb! I'm sorry that this has turned into such a long post. Deleting the other tab stop fixed the Head4TOC lines!
The Head5TOC line looks like it's fixed now on the reference page, but it still appears the same as it did in my previous post on the body page. Can you see anything else that I should change on the Head5TOC line?
Head5TOC had an override on it—did you remove the override, and update the book? I had to fuss with it, but got it to work. I wonder if it is because of the second Head5TOC on reference page 7? Of your 15 reference pages, you only need page 7—the rest are not in use or are empty. Make a copy of the file as a back-up and try deleting the other 14.
Yes, I removed the override and then updated the book. I tried deleting the 14 reference pages that were empty or not in use, and now my TOC looks beautiful!
Thank you again for all of your help, Barb! I don't know what I'd do without you!
