# Re: [NTG-context] Getting ToC to match page numbering

I have three issues where page number formatting in the table of
contents is wrong compared to the pages themselves:

i admit that this is a bit tricky; has to do with how numbers are used for selective purposed; maybe i'll rewrite that part some day (no need to be efficient nowadays)


1. The separator character in the actual pagenumbers is "/". In the ToC
it displays as a "-".

\start
\setuppagenumbering[numberseparator=/]
\placecombinedlist[Xontents]
\stop


2. I used "left=A" on the pagenumbering command in the appendices
because appendices are numbered A1, A2 etc. This gives the required
output for the actual pagenumbers, but there is no 'A' prefix in the ToC.

indeed, since left/right is cosmetics an dit's easier to add that than to remov eit when you dont wan it, so:

\setuplist[Appchapter][pagecommand=A]

% or cleaner: pagecommand=\AppPrefix and \def\AppPrefix#1{A\enspace#1}


3. Similarly in the backmatter I have added a 'I/' prefix to the
pagenumber ("left={I/}"), which works on the pages but is not reflected
in the ToC.

now you know how to do that
