The help says to use a non-breaking space for a generated list so as not to
have a line number sitting on a line by itself.
But I'm using a tab for my TOC instead of a space. Is there a way?

Actually I got the error first.Quote:>At what point did you get the error? Entering the tab? Doing the generate?
With two tabs in place, after the generate, I had the text symbols showingQuote:>And if you got an error, how did you know there was no change?
Nope. I tend to do stuff by explicitly typing the numbers rather thanQuote:>Would your right tab just happen to be a hair to the right of the actual
I wound up with a total of 4 internal errors yesterday so I'm still
wondering if I have something conflicting.
MIFing it didn't work; I had to take baby steps to fix it. Remove a few
unused para tags, save. Nudge a tab, save. Change a variable, save. Generate
after the tiniest change. That kind of thing. But finally, the book is
In your case the crash and the tab are (probably) unrelated, but I would
consider generating a fresh TOC before messing with the tabs any more ...
even seeing if generates without any TOC updates work okay.
Actually, I've done a hundred or so over the past week. (At the beginning, IQuote:>consider generating a fresh TOC before messing with the tabs any more ...
I've been doing a new TOC every 10-20 minutes and thought the internal
errors might be related to that process. Oddly, though I had 4 such errors
on Wed., I had none yesterday. The only difference between those 2 days that
I can figure is that yesterday I was saving after EVERY change (as you
suggested above). This leads me to think that the program does memory
optimization/garbage collection at Save.
I am exporting Xpress Tags from a Filemaker Pro database to produce a
catalogue. The eventual format of the catalogue is that each item has
all the main details in a single paragraph which is justified; but the
price, while still in the same paragraph needs to align to the right,
Text item blah blah stuff
vjbre iivaj if kiji in
etc etc etc etc etc etc
and then.. $4,000
To achieve this, what I do is to precede the price with a right
aligned TAB. This works beautifully most of the time, but every so
often of course the text flow will push the price over onto a new line
where it aligns left unless the tab has also been pushed along behind
it. And it is really tedious going through a 700 item catalogue
manually looking for these instances in order to put in a couple more
tabs; I guess we put up with it because there are a lot of other
things which need repositioning at the same time so it's not that much
It seems the obvious solution would be to use a non-breaking tab which
would always stick on the same line as the price, but this doesn't
exist in Xpress although there seem to be non-breaking versions of
just about every other kind of space or dash.
I've been pondering this on and off for over a year now, convinced
there must be a simple solution. IS THERE???
