Export to epub No Table of Contents

I'm trying to create a navigable TOC that appears in my book as well. I set up a TOC style with "Make anchor in source paragraph" box checked. But when I import, I get an error message that some TOC links aren't working because I need to check the box "Make anchor in source paragraph". I've done this 8 times, each time the box is checked and each time it tells me it isn't.  That means the TOC doesn't even show up on my epub.

I've also tried taking my automatically generated TOC and convert it to text and paste it back into the document, without any links or anything. It still won't show up and I still get the message "Make anchor in source paragraph"  isn't checked in my TOC.

Finally I went through and typed out the TOC and then made links with text anchors. I still get the same export error. This is driving me nuts.

I'm having a similar problem with my TOC in my ebooks. The PDFs export fine and my previous epubs have been fine, but my current document isn't exporting my TOC. I also have "Make Anchor in Source Paragraph" selected. My Nav TOC works fine, but the one in book is just not showing up. It's driving me crazy too. I've tried several work arounds, including using different versions of ID, but nothing. It's maddening.

Is the TOC showing up at the end of the EPUB document? (It's not anchored correctly.)

 

Do you have a TOC "style" defined? (You have to specify the correct style name in the EPUB export menu, although this usually only affects the reader's nav menu.)
