In this video, learn about formatting the text of the table of contents.
- [Instructor] In the previous movie, … we generated a dynamic table of contents. … Structurally, it is sound. … Unfortunately, it looks terrible, … but it's very easily fixed. … All we need to do is change the definitions … of the styles that are applied. … I'll begin at the top, … and we have a style called TOC Title. … This was an auto-generated style. … When I select the text, I see here … that it has acquired an unwanted character style, … so I'll start by just setting that back to None. … I'll change the typeface to Tribute Italic, … the size will be 24, and the leading will be 30. … I'll now come to the style, which has a plus after it, … right click, and choose Redefine Style … to incorporate those overwrites into the style definition. … Now we have six part paragraphs … and each of them is in two pieces. … We need to use a nested style here. … So TOC Head is the style. … I'm going to edit this. … Let me see if I can move this dialogue box … out of the way so that we can see the changes. …
