    style based on heading without the TOC property

    i would like to create a style based on Heading2. the problem is that by basing it on Heading, it gets the TOC property, i.e. it creates a field
    which is used to create a line in the table of contents.
    can i remove this property, but still inherit the typographical properties of Heading2?

    Re: style based on heading without the TOC propert

    this does not completely solve my problem.
    even when i do this (setting outline level to body text), the derived style has a square dot in the outlien area in the left margin in normal view.
    how can i get rid of that property?

    Re: style based on heading without the TOC propert

    The square dot has nothing to do with the outline level & whether the heading will show up in the TOC. The square dot shows up when the paragraph has certain settings. In this case, it's probably the the setting from Format/Paragraph/Line & page breaks tab/Keep with next.

    If you want to prevent your Heading 2 from showing up in the TOC, you can adjust the field codes. Something like:

    { TOC o "1-1" h z t "Heading 3,3" }

    will use Heading 1 & Heading 3, but not Heading 2.

    Cheers,

    Re: style based on heading without the TOC propert

    Because the unwanted style is NOT a Heading (it's only based on a Heading), the code Phil gives won't do the job. Here is how I would try to handle this, if the new style is still showing up in the TOC, even after changing its outline level.

    Try this: Insert > Index and Tables > Table of Contents tab. Click the Options button. On the Table of Contents Options dialog, select the Styles checkbox (if it isn't already selected), then scroll down in the Available styles list until you get to the name of the new style. It will probably have a 2 in the TOC level field. Delete that number (so the field is blank) and click OK. Your TOC should now not show the unwanted headings.
