Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Styling a table of contents, part of InDesign CS3 Long Documents.
So here we are with the Table of Contents. It's been generated, it looks terrible and that's what we are here to do in this movie,…make it look like a decent Table of Contents.…The good news is that we have paragraph styles applied to this text.…So just by changing the style definitions, we will affect the necessary changes in the TOC.…So when I double-click in the story to switch my Type tool, we see I have TOC1 and TOC2.…
They both look the same. I'm going to edit TOC1 to begin with.…Right-click on it and the font I'm using is Adobe Caslon Pro and I'm going to use regular 12 point, 14 point leading,…and I think I will have some tracking with that because I'm going to use OpenType All Small Caps.…And the only other thing I wanted to do here is take off the hyphenation.…
So when I click OK, that applies to everything TOC2 is based on TOC1.…I'm now going to go and edit TOC2 and make changes to that.…It's going to be smaller and that's going to have an indent. Other than that, I think it can remain the same.…
