Karyn, 

There is a paragraph style on the reference page that corresponds to each
paragraph style in your TOC, this is where you set up the right-tabs with
leaders. One common problem to look for is that the right tab for your
leader is slightly beyond the edge of the text frame on the master page. If
the tab is at 6.375 and the edge of the frame is at 6.37, for example, the
leaders will disappear.

Hi All,

   I'm drawing a blank and the help system isn't readily giving me the info
I need. I'm sure the info is there, I just can't find it and I'm in a
hurry...

   I have a template TOC with leader lines and a tab setting of 6.375. I've
just generated the TOC for a new book but 1) the leader lines aren't there
and 2) the file is ignoring the tab set and putting the page numbers flush
left to the chapter title text. I've imported the template formats into the
new TOC several times but it's not picking up on the leader lines or the tab
stop. (It's getting the font, font size and indent right, but losing the
info about the leader lines and tabs.) 

   What am I doing wrong? Where are my leader lines? And how can I get them
back either a) automatically or b) manually? Are leader lines set in the
paragraph designer? The format designer? The reference page? (In which case
I'm sunk b/c I don't know diddly about how to set up reference pages.)

  I'm on FrameMaker 7.1 with Windows XP and the lone writer in a small shop
with godawful deadlines and a patch due out this week.

Karyn
