Stefan Pihlgren says:

Hi, i´m creating a document where i have chapter names in the master pages and then section names (within each chapter) in the actual text on each page. I want to make a Table of Content which includes the masterpage chapter names in it. E.g. “01. Introduction” is the chaptername which is in the master page and applied to 6 pages. Within those 6 pages I have a number of sub-headers which i also want in the ToC. Do you know a way to solve this? Thanks in advance!

Appreciate Video clip! Sorry for chiming in, I would appreciate your thoughts. Have you ever tried – Tarbbatigan ebook master Tip (erm, check it on google should be there)? It is a good one off guide for learning how to create an ebook minus the normal expense. Ive heard some decent things about it and my old buddy Taylor at very last got excellent success with it.
