Hello everyone. Hopefully someone can help me with my problems.

I had created a book file with documents containing other book files.

The general ledger has a table of contents and the books in the general ledger also.

My problem now is, when I save as.pdf, the main table of contents is exported, but the other "slave" table of contents is not.

Are there any settings I need to make?

Thanks for the help

Patrick.

Hi Patrick:

Trying to understand the question:

  1. you have a book file (and calling that a ledger) that has a generated TOC for all of the chapters in the book.
  2. you have generated stand-alone TOCs for each of the chapters.

Is that right?

  1. If not, please share a screen shot of you book window so that we can see the structure.
  2. If right, when you want the stand-alone TOCs to be part of the PDF, they will needed to be added to the book window.

HI Patrick:

You need to add the add the stand-alone chapter TOCs to the book window using the Add Files button at the top of the book window.

My example has a much simpler structure than yours, but you can see my book TOC at the top with the orange/black icon and the stand-alone TOCs above each chapter. When I publish my PDF for the book, Fm will publish all of the listed files.

Hi, Barb,

if I add the TOC with the Add File button, then the TOC file becomes the white orange icon and not the orange black icon, the problem is now when I update the book, the TOC (which I have added ) is not updated.

my second problem is that the TOC in the subordinate book is not the first page, but the second page (first page is the main information) and if I add it to the general ledger, the Toc is now the first page and therefore the TOC is no longer correct.

thanks for help Patrick
