I follow the steps to creating a table of contents - but somehow it's not visible in the document! I just get the heading "table of contents" but there is no visible table of contents underneath.

help! what do I do?

  1. Use the "Heading X" styles to enter chapter headings in your document.
    Do not use the plain "Heading" style, but "Heading 1" for all main chapter headings, then "Heading 2" for subsections, and "Heading 3" for even finer subdivision, etc.
  2. Make sure those heading levels are included in the TOC.
    Right click the TOC and select Edit. Make sure that "evaluate up to level" is set high enough to catch the styles you are using, and that "Create from outline" is ticked.

funny thing - I think the problem was the styles dealie - when I looked at the chapter heads, the style designated was "heading 1" as opposed to "Heading 1" - I switched them to "Heading 1" (uppercase H) and it seems to have worked!

thanks & thanks again!
