TOC Problem with unexplained letter spacing

Hello,

at the moment I am working on a rather basic TOC for a brochure. The TOC was generated with the ID tool. but now a weird problem has come up:

the every "y" in the TOC does not have the same layout as the rest of the text.

I have created two layouts for the TOC (headlines & sub headers) and both have this problem.

Below an image of this problem:

Normally the font size is 11pt and there is no spacing between the letters (I belive it is called tracking in English?) but the "y"s are always 12pt and a 150 spacing.

If I try to change the letters back to normal manually it ID doesn't allow me to go below 12pt and a 10 tracking. Also if I Alt-Click the layout it always jumps back to the large spacing for only the "y".

It is rather infuriating because I don't know if that is a bug or if I made any error in the settings. I am not very experienced with ID so I believe it is totally possible that this problem is entirely my fault and not ID's 🙂

 

If anybody knows what the issue is or how I could correct it, I would be very grateful.
Please let me know if you have an questions about this question.

 

Many thanks in advance

Dennis

Thank you for your quick answer Vladan.

I cannot share the document becasue it belongs to my company and for internal use only.

However since the content is not relevant I have created an example file out of the original for you. It has the same errors.

I just deleted everything except the TOC and created some example headlines.

 

Here is the file via WeTransfer: https://we.tl/t-f1CtJAxdvx

Hope it helps.

 

Many thanks
Dennis

what did you want to accomplish with that grep style?

I saw now this grep style has applied in other paragraph styles too

You have to eliminate this style from other paragraph style also

I wanted to make the dotted lines in the TOC look more neat. But in the end I used an easer solution.

I quite now in ID trying out different aproaches to learn as I on this projekt.

 

I deleted the the grep style from all paragraphs and even deleted the format I used for that.

 

Have a great weekend!
