Dear experts,

In creating a TOC for my book project, I noticed that when the InDesign generated the TOC, the chapter numbers were paired with the wrong chapter titles. I've attached some screenshots to illustrate my inquiry. For instance, "The Answer Is" is actually Chapter 1, yet it looks as if Chapter 1 is paired "Right or Wrong?", which is  Chapter 2, and so on. Did I do my setting incorrectly?  Can someone please help?

Thanks,

Carl

As above, you should threading your frames or make only one frame

Take a look the screenshot (by the way, check the margins of your document)

...or extended the text frame of the CHAPTER 1 as the frame "The Answer is?".

As per Vladan—it comes down to threading, or for an unthreaded title frame, the position of that frame on the page. Can you share a screen shot of the first page of chapter 1 with:

 

  • View > Text Threads enabled
  • All frames selected

 

Then we can be very specific in our answer.

Thank you, vladan. I don't know why I haven't thought of that before.
