Hi!

Please I need your help, I have a complex book called MO_PARTE_A and I have a lot of Chapters separated in folders (attached screenshot), but I need and idea that how can I create a TOC for each chapter (Folder) for example a TOC with the Chapter A1, A1.2 and A1.3, the solution that I have for the moment is that Im working in an individual book for each Chapter (Folder, in this case CAPA1, attached screenshot), but im sure that is not the best way to do this.

 

Please!! thanks!!

Just for completeness: "Generate a miniature table of contents" in the FrameMaker Online Help.

Hi Jeff!

 

The problem with a mini-TOC is that it is only going to incorporate the chapters of a document and i need one TOC with 3 documents (A.1 - A.1.2 - A.1.3).

if you can see the screenshot, i need 5 different TOC.

Sorry, missed that bit - maybe the "book-of-books" concept would work for you in that case. Then you could generate your sub-TOCs in each of the child books.

mmm i think that it is the way that im working now, the only difference is that i dit not incorporate the CAPA1BOOK into the MO_PARTE_ABOOK (because I did incorporate the inidividuals FM), but technically is the same, because any change that I do in the CAPA1BOOK is mirroring in MO_PARTE_ABOOK, but i thought that exist a better way to o this.

 

Please correct me if im wrong.

Thanks Jeff!!

No, you seem to be doing the "book-of-folders" concept, not the "book-of-books" one. I've never used the folders concept, but I don't think you can have the system auto-generate a TOC for you using folders. But I know that you can with the "book-of-books" approach.

I would make a book for each folder's files and add a TOC for each book. Remember that a book is just a pointer to FrameMaker documents so you can have multiple books pointing to the same documents. The purpose of these books is just to create individual TOCs for each folder's documents. Then, in your main book, add each TOC to the book at the correct position. Note that you will be adding these TOCs to the main book as normal FrameMaker files and not generated files.

 

You are still going to use the main book to manage and edit your documents. After making changes, go to each of the individual books and Update them to get the current content in each TOC.

 

One important note: in the Numbering properties in the folder books' components, make sure you choose From File so that your numbering doesn't reflect what is in the folder book, but in the main book.
