Formatting TOC Text

Hello. When a table of contents is inserted scroll bars will be added accordingly. If the title is long enough there will be an obvious need to have a up/down scroll. I am trying to find a method (if one exists) to create a second line on the TOC only to keep the width eliminating the need for a side scroll. The title explorer does not recognize the intention to created an additional line with the Enter command; it simply goes to the next element. Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you.

G'day Gary,

Just did some testing and if your TOC is NOT a dropdown type the you will be able to modify the TOC after publishing. To do this, locate the TOC file in the publish folder, it will be named toc###.html, the ### will be the internal number assigned when you first created the TOC. Locate the page names that need to be split into two lines and insert the simple HTM tag undefined, replacing the space between the words. Save this and test.

It's always a good idea to save the original just in case:-)

The down side to this: This is a manual process that will need to be done each time you publish because the publish process with overwrite the file, I suggest that you add a note on the first page with instructions specific for each title.


Regards, Peter
