Hi Karen, You need to set up how you want your TOC to look on its reference page. If you already have a TOC set up correctly, use File > Import > Formats, deselect All, then select Reference Pages and Paragraph Tags, and import. The next time you update the book, the TOC will be in the correct formatting.
If you don't have one set up correctly, you'll have to do it. Click View > Reference Pages Find the reference page labeled TOC. It'll probably have something there already with paragraph tag labels such as Heading1TOC. Use the paragraph designer to format your <heading_style>TOC tags on this page. When you're done, click View > Body Pages and then regenerate the book HTH, Lin On Tue, Aug 27, 2013 at 4:43 PM, Karen Robbins <karendes...@gmail.com>wrote: > Hi Framers, > > Why does updating a book strip all formatting from existing TOC entries? > I've already imported paragraph formats to the TOC file.
