Chris Despopoulos has a great utility "TOCbreaker" that helps solve this problem if you're running under Windows. See http://www.telecable.es/personales/cud/cssIndex.htm where you can get more info about this (and other tools).
You'll have to make the manual breaks once, but thereafter can easily restore those same line breaks after generating a new table of contents.. - Lester _____ Lester C.

I think my mind is becoming blurry that I can't see the easy answers and think they all have to be much more complex than they are. I have a second issue. the text I want in the table of contents is left justified and the page number is right justified. I use the Reference Page <$elementonly>(tab)....<$pagenum>. When the text is just long enough that it "runs into" the page number the page number wraps to the next line instead of the text "breaking" and then wrapping. Here's an example of what I mean: ILS or ILS/RADAR RWY 26L.......177 SID(VECTOR) NON JET RICHMOND. 178 SID(VECTOR) VANCOUVER......179 NOISE ABATEMENT (pg 1)........180 Is there a way to detect the conflict and "break" the text for page 178 so that it reads like this: ILS or ILS/RADAR RWY 26L.......177 SID(VECTOR) NON JET RICHMOND............................178 SID(VECTOR) VANCOUVER......179 NOISE ABATEMENT (pg 1)........180 _____ From: Tweedy, Scott Sent: November 23, 2005 2:43 PM To: 'framers at FrameUsers.com' Subject: Table of Contents Question I have a table of contents that is dynamically generated from the contents of a book (I do this for 12 different books). At times the length of the text in the element I have to use to create the entries in the table of contents is too long and it wraps to a second line. Is there a way to elegantly handle this situation? What I would like to be able to do is set up a tab so that when the text wraps there is a little bit of an indent to show that the new line is still part of the original element.
