I have a stray bullet in at the beginning of my TOC and I can't figure out how to eliminate it.

I'm assuming your TOC is built on heading styles/sizes. So for example, if your TOC macro is set to use Heading 2 and larger, you have a stray Heading 2 set on a blank line. Set that back to paragraph and your stray bullet will go away.

Had the same issue.  Turned out the TOC macro had been assigned to Heading 1, probably because I had put in a Heading 1 line before I added the TOC.

When I changed the TOC line to Paragraph, the initial stray bullet went away.

Found a better way to fix this. Once the page is in editor mode, on the top right there is source editor icon

In the source editor window, find the unnecessary heading tag which one of the element has and then remove it. 

Save changes and voila!

I had a small table before the toc and I was able to remove the stray bullet by making sure that everything above was at paragraph.  Sort of frustrating but it worked.  Thanks for the response.
