Hi All,

I have a Simple Chapter with Mini Table-of-Content with Heading 2 & Heading 3. See image below:

Mini TOC in Framemaker.jpg

How can I format Mini TOC, so my Mini TOC would look like as follows (including Text Section, Indentation, Leader Line and Page Number), just like the real TOC:

Section 3.1 XXX.....................................................Page #

          Section 3.1.1 AAA........................................Page #

          Section 3.1.2 BBB........................................Page #

Section 3.2 YYY.....................................................Page #

          Section 3.2.1 CCC........................................Page #

          Section 3.2.2 DDD........................................Page #

Section 3.3 ZZZ.....................................................Page #

          Section 3.3.1 EEE........................................Page #

          Section 3.3.2 FFF........................................Page #

 

Thank you.

Hi Aixtron:

 

You are very close. It looks like you forgot to include Heading2 in the Mini-TOC. Right click it and delete the Mini-TOC (because you can't edit it), then add the Mini-TOC back in through the Insert menu. Be sure that both Heading2 and Heading3 appear in the Include List on the left before you click OK.

 

Once both appear, head back to the Reference pages and format Heading2MTOC to look the way you want. 

 

Separately, on your Reference page you are pressing the period key to add leader dots, which is why the page numbers are wavy, and not lined up. Erase the ......s, add a right-align tab and define the leader dot. See below. Oh, and do your really want the page number to appear twice on the line? I think you can remove the first <$pagenum> from your reference page.

This Link Helped reslove the issue but only partially.

https://community.adobe.com/t5/framemaker/mini-toc-question/td-p/10811919

 

I partially esolved this issue through the Reference Page.

I included Heading 2 & Heading 3 but it only displays Heading 3.

How would I know which Tags do I need to include so it would recognize Heading 2 as well?

However, this is the output. It only Prints Heading 3 and Heading 2 is missing.

Hello BarbBinder,

 

Thank you for your support.

In my MiniTOC, I did nclude Head2 and Head3 both but only Head3 appeared on Reference Pages.

But no problem, I duplicated Head3 and then changed its Paragraph Tag to Head2, so now I got Head2 & Head3.

 

About Leader Line and Page Number alignment, you are correct, I did not use Tab but used Period instead.

However, I followed your process and now everything works fine.

Also, I adjusted the Indentation of Head2 & Head3 in Paragraph designer. Everything worked our well.

 

Once again, thank you.

Hello linsims,

 

Appreciate your response.

I totally overlooked this. Completely forgot about the Building Blocks.

 

Per your suggestion, I added <$paranum> block and it is perfect now.

Thank you so much.
