toc right align page numbers

Post by heima » Wed, 12 May 2004 05:14:08


the option to Right align page numbers is greyed out in
the From template setting in the toc dialog. Show page
numbers IS checked on. does anyone know what would cause
this to be greyed out, and how i can get the default not
to be. currently, i'm manually deleting the \p " " switch
in the resulting toc, but others don't know how to do
that. thanks for any, all help.

I find that if I set Formats to Modern, then Right align page numbers is
grayed out. And, if I go ahead and insert a ToC, and later revisit the ToC
dialog, now the Right align... is grayed out for "From template" as well.

However... if I set Formats to Classic (or anything else for which Right
align... isn't grayed out), and insert that ToC... then delete it... when I
revisit the ToC dialog, now the Right align... is no longer grayed out for
From template.

Go figure...

thanks, herb. it works this way for me as well, however,
the "classic" formatting sticks. that is, it doesn't
revert to the From template formatting.

i actually figured out the problem myself. i have TOC 1
formatted as centered; when this is the case, it appears
the option to have page numbers right aligned ceases to be
an option. obviously, i am putting in the \n "1-1" code
to get rid of the page numbers at that top level, but it
would be nice to not have to delete the \p " " code as
well. in fact, it would be nice if the TOC options dialog
allowed you to make these edits right there to the
resulting field. too much to hope for i suppose.
