I'm using Adobe Framemaker 2019 and within a book, when I refresh, the TOC is NOT getting updated. Never seen this before. Need immediate help.
psst, you know this is a user-to-user forum & NOT Adobe Support, right?
Anyways, is the TOC an actual generated TOC or one you built yourself?
There can be any number of reasons but we need a bit more information in order to help.
The console writes what is going wrong when you run the update process. A common thing is documents which have error when opening. Like missing fonts or images. If there are errors like that, FrameMaker won't open and update these chapters when you run the update process.
Another common error is renaming the TOC. It has to have the exact same name as the book file, with a TOC at the end.
Actually this is not true. My TOC files always have a generic name like contentsTOC.fm. You just have to rename the file in the book file.
There you go 🙂 Never tried that. Thanks.
The first two things that I would check:
What about the TOC is not getting updated:
• page numbers?
• new entries expected?
• stale entries still there?
• entries not in page order?
• entry text content or formats?
