I am currently trying to make a table of contents in InDesign that houses two levels of headings. To make the hierarchy more clear I have changed the fontsize of the level 2 headings. My problem is, that this results in the page-number references to also have different sizes, which is not exactly what I want, since it looks rather odd.

Table of contents with pagenumber references in different sizes

If possible I would like to have those page numbers at the same (smaller) text-size. How can I achieve this? Will I have to manually style them?

Here a sample of how I would like it to look made in Photoshop

In the Toc panel, first click on "more Options".
Then, all you have to do is to create and apply a character style to the page numbers. Repeat for every entry.
