Default Table of Contents - Formatting

Hello,

I have a table of Contents in which I need the topic in bold but the tab
leader an page number should be normal.

So far I can only go either all bold or all normal. Is there a switch I can
use in the style?
--
Thank-you and all suggestions are appreciated.

Unfortunately, no, this is not possible without direct formatting applied
after the TOC is unlinked. This functionality has been suggested to
Microsoft and perhaps will be available in some future version of Word.

Default Table of Contents - Formatting

I have a similar problem, I think. My heading styles in the Word document are
bolded, however, I would like for the TOC to be regular. I attempted to
modify the font style, but when updating my TOC, it still reverts to bold.
Should I try unlinking the TOC? If so, how does one do that and can it be
re-linked? Thank you for any feedback.

If you are seeing this result it's because you have applied the bold as
direct formatting, not part of the paragraph style. The TOC picks up only
direct font formatting. See http://sbarnhill.mvps.org/WordFAQs/TOCTips.htm
for more.

Default Table of Contents - Formatting

I have this problem and as far as I can tell, I did not directly format my
headings. All formatting came via modifying the Heading X styles.

Specifically, through the Style pane I used Modify -- Format -- Numbering
to set the font of the heading numbers to be bold. I don't want the numbers
to be bold in the ToC but I can't seem to get them any other way.
Suggestions?

If the bold numbering is defined as part of your heading style (rather than
applied to the headings as direct formatting), it should not be reflected in
the TOC.

No, it shouldn't, but it is. In fact, I don't think there is any other way
to change the font attributes of the heading numbers besides modifying them
from within the style definition, is there?

I actually solved the problem shortly after posting by blanking out the
font, font style, and size that were shown so that nothing was selected. I
then cleared the formatting on the actual headings in the text and reapplied
the correct heading style. Finally, I regenerated the ToC and that cleared
the bold number in the ToC. Whew!

It's possible that just Ctrl+Q on the headings and F9 on the TOC would have
done it. g
