I guess I want it to wrap to the next line to keep the numbers aligned?

I found an article (I forgot where) where you change the min/max percentages. And that worked. I appreciate all your help.

First two thoughts are:

  1. Are the spaces normal or non-breaking in what I'd guess are Table titles?
  2. Is the Tab-R position in the TOC actually at the right edge of the column?

@bob Per Barb I added a non breaking space on the long titles but no luck.

I do not understand what you mean in #2

I was just trying to figure out what we are seeing here, and not suggesting fixes. Barb seems to have a more solid handle on it than I do at the moment.

My #2 question was about whether the column or text frame is actual wider than that tabbing expects.

Anyway, the way I might work around this is to generate the ToC from invisible metaparagraphs, which are themselves just Xrefs to suitably short Headings/Titles, but would be hand crafted auto-numbered abbreviations for really long Headings/Titles.

Hi @nrvphotography :

 

I would go to page 65 and replace the space between Block and Description with a non-breaking space: Ctrl + spacebar. Then update the book.

It did not work using the non breaking space.

Should there be a \t on the reference page?

InDesign has an elegant solution to this specific situation that is missing in FrameMaker. Would you consider voting for this feature request?

Your reference page is great.

 

You are showing us a different area of the text in the second screenshot. Can you show us the original screenshot after you add the non-breaking space to page 65?
