I'm working on a catalogue which has over time worked it's way up to 36 pages. I placed text boxes with Section Markers on the Master Page spread to use as the header for each page.
I then created a TOC using the paragraph style of the section marker followed by the products header style. That created a perfect TOC as below:
Round Widgets Blue Round Widget.....1 Orange Widget.........2 Square Widgets Chrome Square Widget..3 Vandium Square Widget.3 Specialty Widget Nuclear Powered.......4 Accessories Widget Fuel...........4
The Creative Director requested some changes to the header which meant that they had to be created manually, which I did by overriding the initial pair of headers on a spread and then copying each to all the following pages. I then created new section markers on the master page and moved them to a new hidden layer.
I updated the style for the TOC, checking the "Include Text on Hidden Layers" option. However, now the section markers no longer appear. I've tried creating a new test file, but again, I can't get section markers to appear in the table of contents.
I've tried using Running Headers, and section markers on the pages themselves, but in those cases I end up with multiple entries in the TOC, like so.
Round Widgets Blue Round Widget.....1 Round Widgets Orange Widget.........2
Is there any way to have the section marker appear only once in the TOC?
