Post Issues with generating ebook html table of contents Reply with quote
Hello,

I've just been struggling to get a manual table of contents to work when compiling an ebook.
I got it working eventually, but I thought I'd mention this if anyone else has any thoughts on it.
I have a project with several short stories in separate folders, each with chapters titled: 'Chapter One', 'Chapter Two' etc.
I created a page for my ToC and linked each text link to the correct chapter for my first story.
Whatever I did, when I compiled to Kindle I couldn't get the links to show up in the ToC page, they just came out as blank gaps between my Front and Back Matter pages.
After an hour or so, I discovered that the solution was to rename any duplicate chapter titles to unique names ('01 - Chapter One' , 02 - Chapter One') for each of the different stories.
Is this the correct behaviour for Scrivener compiling? Is it working as it should? Surely I can have duplicate text file names in my project without causing link errors?
Also, in the Compile settings, where I have to type the title of my Table of Contents - surely it would be better just to be able to browse for the correct file? When things weren't going right and my ToC wasn't being output, I was getting confused as to what the 'Table of contents Title' was alluding to - was it the Text file title or the title within the page?
Anyway, apart from a few stumbles I'm really enjoying V3

Please help

I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
