    Would this apply also if you perhaps were referencing exhibits vs. headings ?

    Not sure what you mean by "exhibits." But as long as it is a Paragraph style, you should be able to include it in the TOC.

    Gary, I have been working on a Living Trust Document that is long. I was just thinking yesterday, "I wish I knew how to do a table of contents." Thank you for making my life easier. I will be using this for many of my real estate guest manuals for Airbnb as well. I really appreciate your clear explanation. You are a wonderful instructor.

    Thanks so much for this Gary!!! I have been spending SO MUCH time tediously creating TOC from scratch in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC. I knew there must be a work-a-round in some app, and this feature in Pages is AWESOME!!! Very clear explanation too!!!!

    Hi Gary, what about footnotes? Thinking of references to articles and web sites, thought would be nice to reference them in footnotes with specific assigned styles, then use the TOC functions to make dynamic lists of footnotes. I tried but it seems that styles in footnotes are not acceptable for the TOC. Hope you have some way around, in any case many many thanks for all your fantastic work!
