Hello,

you need to adjust the styles for the TOC.  Find the styles

TOC Heading
TOC 1
TOC 2
TOC 3

etc. and change the styles to suit your needs. This EE  article shows how to display the style of the current paragraph in the QAT.

cheers, teylyn

TOC take data from Paragraph parameters:
TOCYou can modify Title1 style adding Level 1 to it and add new syle, based on Heading1 with Level 2 and change style of all Headings 1 to this new style. Look at sample
