I can not create a table of contents for a book

Post by Oldenfelde » 02 Jun 2018, 18:18

I can not create a table of contents for a book because I only see the currently open project under "Show List For."
There is no possibility, to choose "Book".
Project 1: Master and title
Project 2: Content (here I want to put table of book-content)
Project 3 ....

I use latest QXP 2018 version under Windows 10.
Windows 10 Pro | ASUS Prime Z270-P with Intel i7-7700K (Quadcore) Kabylake | 16 GB RAM | ASUS Dual GTX1060 Nvidia Geforce Graphic Card | QXP 2018
Project: Book 464 pages in 30 projects (chapters)

I think you must open the book file with extension .QXB (as I remember) not the files with chapters that have .QXP extension. After that you will see the option to create a TOC for the book.
