TOC generation asks if I want to include overset... but there is no overset

Hi, I'm generating a TOC for a 3-file book using ID 15.0.3 CC and Windows 10 (all current).

 

I have generated a TOC for this book several times during iterative editing, and without problem. <Then there was the intervening upgrade to 15.0.3> Suddenly, generating the TOC asks me if I want to include items from overset text. Except... there IS no overset text. Preflight doesn't show any, Story Editor doesn't show any, and I can't find any. I don't believe I've added any manually. And there wasn't any the last time I generated the TOC.

 

When I say yes, include overset, TOC generates only the TOC title and no headings. When I say no, the TOC generates its TOC (and apparently correctly). This has not occurred in previous work-- in this doc or in others. I'm usually pretty good about not having careless overset text lying around in the text stream.

 

Does anyone know what might be going on here? What is ID's TOC generation seeing as overset text that Preflight and Story Editor do not? I've recently had some other formatting problems with 15.0.3 (with numbered figure captions not centering unless they are in a text field in an anchored frame), and I'm now wondering if the current rev is a wee bit buggy...

 

Summary: I have generated the TOC successfully, but I still get the warning when I do. This is not a work-stopper, but it is puzzling.

Thanks for any insight.

I've never seen that message without actual overset text. As these oddities pile up, you might want to report them on the uservoice page and reinstall 15.0.2 from the CC desktop app for the time being.
