Please help!
« on: December 27, 2009, 04:07:09 AM »
Hello,

Can anybody please tell me how to permanently format text in a table of contents?

A heading I have is particularly long and in the table of contents it spills over onto 2 lines.

It looks like this

  1.2 New types of organisms in the centre of the
  sample...........................................................20

What I would like to do is format it so it looks like this:


  1.2 New types of organisms in the centre of the
       sample......................................................20

But everytime I press the space bar in the table of contents and then click on 'update table' it automatically goes back to the first variation.

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks,

Newbie

I guess it does not apply to Table of Contents though.
