TOC Shenanigans (Not pulling para tag from book)

We've been doing several books with multiple documents in each book; up until now, TOC creation has been pretty easy; select the book, create standalone TOC, select which paragraph tags to include, and then apply or import formats, edit reference pages, etc. For whatever reason, the book we just finished pulls in all of the para tags we designate EXCEPT Level1Tag2, and it ONLY fails to do this when we try to make a TOC for the entire book. If we make separate standalone TOCs for each document in the book, each document TOC brings in the Level1Tag2 and includes it. It's only when we try to do the whole book that it fails. Every other tag we select gets pulled without problem. 

Any ideas what might be causing this and how to fix it? Thanks in advance.

Hi,

 

In your Include area there isn't any paragraph tag, especially not Level1Tag2. Can you add all paragraph tags which you need in your book TOC, update the book and then describe what happens. And please post also a screenshot of this dialogue in this book and another book where this works?

 

Best regards

I think your reference pages may be borked. It looks like you've got the <$paranum> building block, but not the <$paratext> one.

I'm not sure how to fix this. When I'm generating TOCs for individual documents, it creates tthe TOC correctly, but no references page seems to be generated, at least how i'm used to seeing them in FM 16. The PC that's having trouble is Windows 11, FM 17 and we had to use a FM 16 file to pull formats from initially. Could that cause a problem?

Rick has probably already told you, but Reference pages are part of every FM document. They're where you set up graphics for use with paragraphs, how to convert to HTML, and where you set up how you want all your generated documents to look. They do not print.

Hi @TeamMancomm:

 

This will come down to an issue with the reference pages. As a quick fix, you can copy the building blocks from the IX reference page in the standalone TOC and paste them onto the IX reference page in the book TOC.

 

They are two separate files and so they have two different reference pages controlling their presentation. That's why they are different.
