Hi all: What's so strange is that the TOC hyperlinks to all the chapter titles, but not all the chapter titles in the actual chapter have the marker in front of them.
What I've been able to discover that that two of the original files -- the one I renamed and the one I used to create three new chapters -- have a marker, as do the three new chapters I created. The original file that I renamed had the box marker. The renamed file now has the T marker. The original file that I copied has the box marker. Two of the three files that I created by copying the original file also have the box marker, but one has the T marker. The paragraph tag is the same in all cases -- Chapter Title. The marker didn't stay consistent in the case of the renamed chapter, and the marker didn't copy consistently in the case of the three copied files. As far as I've been able to discern, the white box and the T are both hyperlink markers. Presumably the different markers indicate some difference, but I don't know what the difference it. And, I've just noticed that one of other files has the white box both at the start *and* the end of the file. I'm not even going to go there! I think I'm creating a tempest in a teacup, here, since the document runs just fine, but when one of the tech writers used the template two weeks ago, one of the chapters appeared as the *old* chapter, that I renamed -- both the chapter title *and* the file name. I have no idea where it came from, and I'm afraid the marker, since it points to the old file, is pulling the old file from an entirely different folder. I haven't been able to duplicate that problem, so I don't know what happened there. Fred is right; I don't want to be deleting these markers without knowing what their function is. Hence, these emails. But I'm also running experiements to find out what does happen when I delete these markers. I'll be sure to let you all know if I find out anything else. Thanks, Peter, for the info about how to delete the marker with the marker dialog box open. Also, I have consulted online Help, Publishing Fundamentals (O'Keefe), Classroom in Book, and FrameMaker User Guide, and haven't so far found what the white box means. I really appreciate everyone's feed back.
