Hi all! I've managed to use InDesign for years now without needing to figure out how to automatically generate a table of contents. But now I need to. So... I've seen how to create the table of contents. And I've know how to create hyperlinks to go to specific pages. But I can't figure out how to generate both at once. Is there a way? Or is it just a 2-step process? I want to have a table of contents that is updated whenever I add or remove pages. AND I want that table of contents to be clickable... so it can take you to those pages. It seems like it should all be created at once. But maybe not? Thanks for any input you can give me.

In the ToC generator dialog box, click More Options, and see near the bottom you can check ON the box labeled "Create PDF Bookmarks" and I usually also include "Make Text Anchor In Source Paragraph"
