Yes, tried it a couple of different ways and no success.

 

As an alternative, I have proposed a script solution where you have a single
book with the TOCs for each language in their desired positions in the main
book. (This is how their book is set up currently anyway.) After you update
the book, all of the TOCs have the same content, but then a script goes
through each TOC and deletes all the content except for entries to files
immediately following the TOC, up to the next TOC in the book. The script
can be automatically invoked by the update process so it should be pretty
seamless.

Arnis over on the forums suggested working from the bottom up on these book
of books scenarios - create the generated matter in the sub-books first &
then do the top level book last. Have you done that & still have no success
Rick?

Conceptually, sub-books--each containing their own TOC--should work, but
when you make a PDF from the master book, the generated files in each
sub-book don't appear in the PDF. I haven't figured out why, but have
confirmed it in my tests.

You could put each language in one file and create a local TOC in each file.
You also might be able to use subbooks and make TOCs for each subbook, but
I've never used subbooks, so I don't know if seperate TOCs per subboks exist
in FM.

Happy Monday!

 

What is the best way to set up multiple TOCs in the same book? I have a book
containing 16 languages, with each language having its own TOC.  I need each
of the 16 TOCs to display Heading 1s and Heading 2s in their own language
only. I can generate multiple TOCs in my book, but my trouble is that each
TOC shows me ALL the Heading 1s and Heading 2s in my book, so I get all 16
languages in each TOC. I can easily delete them from each of the 16 TOC
files, but they come back every time I update the book. 

 

The only thing I can think of doing is changing my Paragraph Tags in each
language. So I'd have Heading 1_eng, Heading 1_fre, Heading 1_spa, etc. And
then I'd have to apply those to every heading 1 and 2 in every one of my
languages. That's a lot of work. There must be an easier way, right?

 

Thanks,

Alan
