Hello Harbs,

from time to time I find myself creating textbooks and scientitic literature with quite a few hundred or even more than 1000 pages. Typically the TOC gets rather lengthy, and usually I have to correct its look manually – formating line breaks, assigning different styles etc.

When the book get its good to print, I redo the TOC (often more than once) in order to keep it up to date, so I find myself reformatting the changes again (and again), which can sum up to quite some hours of extra work. I really miss a plug-in or script solution that gives me the possibility to change every page number of a TOC entry to a cross reference, so – as long as there’s no change to the headlines in general – the page numbers are updated automatically without destroying the manual changes to the layout. 

Would something be possible to build? Or does it already exist? 

Best

Uli

Yes. It's possible, but I don't know of an existing solution for this.
