Hi guys,


I apply a paragraph style to different titles for defining the content of the TOC.

When in portrait orientation and when the title occupy more than one line of text into the TOC, it looses the allignment.




2             Grundlagen                                                              8

                     2.1 Brandschutz                                                9

                     2.2 Begriffe und Definitionen                             10

                     2.3 Innerer Sicherheitsbereich                           11

                     2.4 Gesetzliche Grundlagen                              13

                     2.4.1 Allgemeine gesetzliche Grundlagen für den

Strafvollzug   14 



Is there any way to deal with this without have to stop using ibooks author till is resolved?

I know we cannot customize the TOC in portrait orientation, but I can't believe nobody during the software development tested what happens when the titles are longer than one line of text


Thank you very much

    Select (highlight) the TPC text & page numbers.

    Select Show Rulers from the View menu.

    Adjust the position of items, move page numbers to the right & titles to the left until everything fits.

    He means TOC. It's a neat trick to fix alignment. You may also change the font size to make the headings fit.

    Gach: Unfortunately, you can't modify the TOC is portrait mode.

    I just got rid of the page numbering in the TOC --since TOC titles are hyperlinks, I figured nobody would need the page numbers anyway. That eliminates the layout problem.
