Single ToC, multiple PDF outputs

Postby Fiona on Thu Jan 26, 2023 3:03 am

I need to produce multiple styles of PDF with the same ToC. Unfortunately there are a few different page layouts within each book (front cover, ToC, chapters, index, etc). From the responses in viewtopic.php?f=75&t=31900 it looks like I'll have to replicate the ToC multiple times and assign the different page layouts to each one. This strikes me as very bad practice and not at all future proof, so I was wondering whether anyone knows of an alternative approach (for example, is it possible to include a variable in the ToC entry page layout selection so that it always uses the "chapter" layout but the target chooses whether it's chapter style 1, chapter style 2, chapter style 3, etc.)?

The only workaround I can think of is putting all the chapters into one ToC, then having multiple other ToCs (one for each PdF output) that pull this in. More future proof than just completely replicating the original ToC but not ideal.
