I'm producing a DITA bookmap and I'm trying to insert the ToC (table of contents). When I insert the element, FM asks me to refer to a specific file. How can I automatically generate the toc and if that's not supported, how can I go about adding a toc? My impression is that automatic generation should be possible since FM uses DITA-OT to compile outputs.
Not sure if this is THE BEST WAY, but... I use Maker to do what Maker does, and DITA to do what DITA does. When it's time to generate a PDF, what I do is save my ditamap as a composite document. I then include that document in a Maker book, complete with title page, TOC, and any other book components I want. I then generate the book, and save as PDF.
I view the TOC as a specific rendering of the ditamap, and it's not actually part of the DITA itself... A TOC is "format" while the DITA is content and structure. So I don't want the TOC to be anywhere near the actual DITA... I want to generate the TOC when the time is right. And Maker is good at that.
