The Table of Contents chapter is used to control the location of the table of contents in your book. Gedcom Publisher generates the content for the table of contents automatically from the list of Chapters.

Usage Guidelines and Limitations

  1. You should not disable the Table of Contents chapter. A table of contents is required by most reading systems. A book that does not include a table of contents may be rejected by online publishers, or may not work properly with some reading programs or devices.
  2. You should not add multiple Table of Contents chapters. Gedcom Publisher will ignore the second and subsequent Table of Contents chapters.



The Title property identifies the chapter in the list of chapters list. The title appears in the chapter and in the Table of Contents.

See the Include in Chapter Count for an explanation of using "{#}" in the title.


You should not disable this chapter.

Include in Chapter Count

The Include in Chapter Count property indicates whether a chapter is counted when assigning the sequential chapter number that Gedcom Publisher inserts into chapter titles when "{#}" is included in the Title property text.

Include in Chapter Count is usually unchecked for special purpose chapters such as the table of contents or a dedication page.

If you include the text "{#}" in your title, Gedcom Publisher will replace that text with the chapter number.

If Include in Chapter Count is unchecked, you should not use "{#}" in your title. If you do, the number will be the same as the previous numbered chapter.

Using "{#}" in your title makes it easier to maintain sequential chapter numbers by letting Gedcom Publisher count the chapters for you.
