Question: TOC not updating


Somehow my TOC is not updating even though I did everything like explained on the Apple website:

Add or remove items in the table of contents

  1. If the Document inspector isn’t open, click the Inspector button User uploaded file in the toolbar, then click the Document inspector button User uploaded file.
  2. Click the TOC button.
  3. Do any of the following:

    Add an item: Click the Add pop-up menu User uploaded file, choose Add Paragraph Style, and choose an option from the submenu.

I applied the header styles H1, H2, H3 etc to the titles of my book but they wont show up on the various pages of my TOC. Can somebody please help me? I'm going crazy already 😟

Thanks in advance,

Thanks I managed to sort it out by adding "Abschnitte" (maybe paragraphs in english). You can add them on the top left + button below "chapters". The titles of these Abschnitte are then displayed in the TOC. However could somebody still please explain me what I can set with the settings described in my previous message? These settings don't change anything for me.

The steps you used before are right, but they don’t show up in the toc on the chapter pages. Chapter pages have sections as sub toc.

Your paragraph styles for TOC should show up in the drop down toc on macOS version of iBooks though.
