Length of text flow names reduced

Dear all, FM 11 has another quite disturbing new feature: The length of the name of a textflow is reduced to the size of the window (18 characters with numbers; 12 characters when inserting big M). In Version 9 I could insert any amount of characters in this field. The old names are still visible

I'm sure you've all had the problem with TOCs, LOTs, LOFs, and even indexes. When the title reaches the end of the line (or too many index entries), the tab character that should position the page number at right aligned tab doesn't work, and the page number appears left justified on the second

Chris Despoupolis's (sp?) TocBreaker might be of use. You'd have to insert your soft returns once and run TocBreaker to save the information. After that, you run TocBreaker after regenerating. (http://cudspan.net/) It works with all generated lists. You can use Google to search the archives by
