Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding a table of contents, part of InDesign CS3 Long Documents.
I want to make a Table of Contents across my book.…I want to print my whole book or I want to export my whole book as a PDF.…Let's see how we can do that but before we do that, I want to change the colors back to the way they were…because this color combination is a little bit garish.…So I'm in the style source document and if I press Ctrl or Apple+Z a couple of times,…or three times in fact, I get back to the way I was.…But when I look at the other documents in the book, they are not affected by that undo…and to have them affected I need to resynchronize.…
So I'm going to make sure that none of my documents there are selected, amounting to all of them being selected and then click…on the Synchronize button and we're back to the way we were.…Now in order to add my Table of Contents I want to make sure that I'm in the document that is going to contain the Table…of Contents because the Table of Contents is going to auto-generate for us a text file and we need to make sure…we're in the right document where we want that text file to go. And I'm now going to come up to a Layout menu, choose Table of Contents…
