ERROR in Table of Contents

Unread postby Anna Ryut » Tue Sep 24, 2019 3:46 pm

Hi there!

Does anybody know how to solve this error:

"ERROR in Table of Contents: This section has grown after inserting page numbers, because one or more headings caused an extra line break."?

This error appears when I publish one of my PDF docs and I can't find the reason. Is it PDF template or project styles?

Hi Anna,

This means that the text objects in the template you used for the text including the page numbers in your table of contents were not wide enough to accommodate all the possible numbers. For example, if they were just wide enough to accommodate two digits but not three, they will create an extra line when page numbers higher than 99 are displayed, and that could make the pagination in your entire PDF document incorrect.

You need to make the affected text objects wider in the table of contents section in your PDF template, so that they have enough space for page numbers with the highest possible number of digits.
