While the plug-in was not a perfect solution, once my toc was stable, I set
up the page breaks and line breaks. Then I just had to select the two menu
options to have them automatically applied again. I found that much easier
than redoing all the breaks manually.

The only other feasible solution that I investigated was a custom script
that I believe would still entail an additional step after updating the

I am interested in a real "auto" solution to this issue. It crops up now
and then and "now" it has cropped up again. None of the tips others have
left for you work for me either.

I tried the plugin...but for me I might as well just remember to stick in
manual breaks at the end of the process. Not much difference for me. It's
not graceful, but it needs to be done.
