I have a question about the table of contents when creating a "Book" (.indb).
First a little background.
I have a bunch of 2-3 page documents (about 100 documents) that I need to be able to organize into a book easily with the File>New>Book... option. It is super easy except for one thing, I cannot get the table of contents to acknowledge any of the other documents in the book. It just stays blank. The TOC is set up just fine and works if I import the pages from one document into another large document but it doesn't work in the "Book" method. I need to have non-designer folks with just about no training do this often. These people will have to rearrange the short modular documents pretty regularly so I am hoping to stick with the "Book" method rather than having folks mess with pages (to reduce the chance of altering the designs).
Does anyone have a quick solution or know of an existing tutorial? If not I would appreciate any other help you can offer.
Thanks for the tip. That helped. Here is what I did to get it to work.
1. I created all of the individual files including a table of contents in an .indd.
2. I created a Book (.indb) with all of the .indds in it.
3. I then went back into the .indd containing the table of contents, clicked Layout>Table of Contents and then saw that the "include book documents" box which was not previously available was now available to be selected.
