Apparently, just setting the title format of the TOC to a format that is included in the TOC is not enough, so how can I have the TOC refer to itself?

  • When you create table contents, leave out the title and add the title in a separate text frame to the TOC page. – Joonas Apr 7 '16 at 12:25
  • @Joonas That currently seems to be the only way - could you post this as answer so the question doesn't remain unanswered? – Tobias Kienzler Apr 8 '16 at 5:40

    "TOCception": the entry for a Table of Contents is inside the Table of Contents so you can look up on which page to find the Table of Contents. ;-) But seriously: unless this is a special request from an important client (and whom you cannot talk out of it), I'd rather not do this. – Jongware Apr 8 '16 at 10:05
  • @RadLexus :D The major point is having a PDF bookmark for the TOC and keeping them in sync with the TOC. And legacy, always legacy... – Tobias Kienzler Apr 8 '16 at 11:13

Since it is not "really" possible, I chose a workaround:

  • remove the TOC title from its options
  • manually add the TOC title in a separate text frame before the TOC-frame
