What is the Default Style of a TOC
By default, TOC documents in QuickSilver use the following style conventions.
The order of entries in a TOC are based on the order of source document(s) in the book and the order of the corresponding elements in those documents.
Component Names and Properties
QuickSilver appends the letters TOC to component names in the TOC document, truncating the last three characters of a component name as it appears in the source document, if necessary.
Except for name, Font Size, Bold, Dictionary, Initial Indent, Top Margin, and Allow Break After settings, all components in a TOC document have the same properties. The font is a 10-point serif font. Headings are separated from page numbers by two tabs, one of which is dotted.
When a TOC contains multiple components with differing names, the first component appears in 12-point bold, as do all other components with the same name. For example, suppose a component called titleTOC is the first component in a TOC that contains multiple kinds of components. That component and all other instances of titleTOC appear in 12-point bold.
The default TOC is a single column document, with two levels of component indentation. If you change the TOC to multicolumn, you can alter component indents or the default gutter width, if necessary, to keep the components from straddling columns.
You can easily correct or update a TOC once you have created it. Use the following general guidelines to make changes to a TOC:
NOTE: You can leave a TOC document open hile you edit the orresponding source documents.
How To modify TOC content in source documents:
As the content of source documents changes, corresponding TOC documents might also require changes.
After making changes in source documents, you can re-generate the TOC to reflect those changes.
How To modify TOC style:
You can fine tune the appearance of a TOC document by editing it as you would any other QuickSilver document.
Important: When you edit link-ready TOC documents, do not remove, or explicitly move, the index tokens at the beginning and end of each entry.
To automate TOC formatting, you can use a book catalog. For example, you could use a catalog to export to a TOC
