After I get all my chapter and text in, I go to the Table of Contents and the titles are different? They are not capped, wwell some are, they go off the page, not centered, etc.  Looks like crap. They completely are different than the chapter heads in the regular content area? Is there any way to actually edit the TOC?  I cannot seem to edit the text that shows up there.

    Sorry, what is 'regular content area'...?

     

    Which template are you using?

     

    Did you layout in landscape and edit in portrait?

    At the risk of pushing you to work with a corrupted book....which elements have you tried to refresh?

    Let's try an orthogonal approach

     

    Remove the chapter label, leave the TOC blank and you'll then have a basic/generic point from which to work...

    Not sure whether this will help, but those grey boxes look a lot like an outline of the chapter thumbnails you normally get when looking at a TOC in landscape mode.

    It looks like you have more headings in the chapter than what will actually fit on the TOC page in landscape mode. The grey boxes are where, normally, the chapter navigation thumbnails go. I'm not sure why you see only an outline of the thumbnails in the first screen shot. In the second screenshot, I think the thumbnails will appear as soon as you add body pages and content to the template.

     

    I suspect the only way out is to either change the layout of the TOC page so the text box for the headings is large enough to accommodate them all, or make the heading font size smaller, or remove the text box altogether, so the headings don't show on the TOC page in landscape mode. (They'll still be there in portrait mode.)

     

    Michi.
