If I want to use a different style set for my created Table of Contents - how do I do that? I know how to create one and change the styles to be used in the TOC. But how would I change the style of the actual TOC? Thanks

Hi,

pls try


On the References tab, in the Table of Contents group, click Table of Contents, and then click Insert Table of Contents.
In the Table of Contents dialog box, click Modify.
In the Styles list, click the level that you want to change, and then click Modify.
In the Modify Style dialog box, make the formatting changes that you want, and then click OK.
Repeat steps 3 and 4 for all the levels that you want to display in your table of contents.

Ah, I had a look at this. I always tend to pick Modern as my TOC but your option above only appears when I click on From Template. So if I wanted to change the layout of the Modern TOC...what then? Thanks by the way :-)

If I choose Modern, the Options button isn't live....so really it appears that I have to go with the From Template option if I want to update the look of my TOC..that's not an issue as long as I know what I have to do to change it..

What I mean is to insert the Toc with modern Format then to insert a second time a TOC then with From Template format since it should stay with the modern format
