Chapter 8. Creating Tables of Contents and Other Lists

Chapter 8. Creating Tables of Contents and Other Lists

Open any book or magazine and take a look at the table of contents. The table of contents is the key to what’s inside. It maps out an organized list of topics or chapters and the pages on which they start. Two factors define a table of contents: contents and aesthetics.

Many other types of lists serve as guides to what’s inside documents. Lists of figures and tables organize figure or table titles and the pages on which they start. Lists that include markers, alphabetized paragraphs, and referenced items in documents are lists that FrameMaker uniquely enables you to create.

Do you remember that eleventh-hour project that had you creating a table of contents, list of figures, and list of tables by hand? If so, you’ll appreciate letting FrameMaker do that grunt work for you.

This chapter provides you with the information you need to understand the architecture behind tables of contents and other lists, how to set these up for the first time, change them at any time, and solve some of the problems that you might run into. You also explore how various FrameMaker parts work together to produce these lists and what you need to do to make it all work.
