I am generating a print output of my online help.

When I insert the front matter the in the book Toc, the Toc gets generated but it also displays come portions of content. For example an image. I guess the tags that it picks to build the toc are applied to the image. How can I fix that?

Secondly, when I insert the cover page it is part of the front matter and it gets added to the toc. How can i exclude the cover page from the toc? When I dragged it outside the front matter it showed in the output the toc got hidden. How can I keep both without clashes?

The second part is easy. It's the same as any other item you want in the TOC to get it in the build but don't want to appear in the TOC when users see it, you select the item in the TOC and select the Hide in Output checkbox.

 

The first part may be the same issue. I'm not clear on what you are seeing.

I've seen it in Word before where some content that "isn't" a heading gets included in the TOC. This is usually caused by inline formatting; that is, the paragraph is a heading, but inline formatting has been used to make it look like a regular paragraph.

 

For images, this can happen when the image is accidentally inserted in the heading paragraph, and the size causes it to wrap to the next line so it looks like a separate paragraph.

 

So I would check the individual topics to make sure the correct styles are applied to the rogue content, and images are inserted in their own paragraph.
