Hi. I'm new to Indesign, getting stumped by a table of contents I created for my new book. The TOC is quite long so I inserted a number of blank pages first, then created the TOC. After I formatted the TOC, I ended up with a number of empty pages between the last TOC entry and the first page of actual content, so I deleted the unwanted blank pages. Now it looks like the TOC area overruns my first page of actual content and I can't ficure out how to redefine the TOC area.  To help underdtand the error, the first heading in my actual content is formatted with paragraph style Heading 1. Now, I can't select that entire page of text.  When I try to select the first conent line, it shows that it is formatted as TOC1 which is the style I created for the this level inside the TOC. If I try to change this back to Heading 1, then it changes it in the last line of the TOC.   Between the messed up page and the next page of actual content which wasn't affecred bty the error there looks like a Link icon, but I can't figure out what to do with it.
