Hi Ch!

The table of contents macro should show all header lines on the page in order.

For example, if you had a page with the following three headers in this order on a page...




...then the table of contents would show them in the same order, similar to:

  • Red
  • Blue
  • Green

(For more information, I also recommend reviewing the Table of Contents documentation: Table of Contents Macro)

Some questions that might help the Community troubleshoot:

  • Are the items in the Table of Contents in the same order as the headings on the page?
  • Could you provide some screenshots of a page that shows the table of contents and headers out of order?
