TOC Text over-run

Unread postby Ga Bowen » Thu Aug 31, 2017 4:16 pm

In a pdf's TOC I am getting the following:


It seems to be the only title that does it and I have re-pdf'd several times.

Any ideas?

Hi Ga,

I looks like either the text object in the band for that level extends beyond the borders of the band. Then a longer text would also be able to extend beyond the border because the text object is the container for the the text and defines how far it can go. Another possibility would be that the spaces in that title are non-breaking spaces, but that is very unlikely.

If you continue to have problems please mail a demo project illustrating the issue and the .mnl template you are using to support AT (replace the AT with @) and we will check it for you.

In case anyone in the future has this problem, Tim solved this for me.

Simply I had turned off Word wrap in the Label Properties in the Table of Contents tab in Print Manual Designer.
