Default Table of content is counted av chapter 1


I have a problem with my Table of Content. When I try to insert the Table of Content the Table of Content becomes chapter nr 1, but my chapter nr 1 should be my Introduction Chapter. Please see the screenshot:

When I click on then References tab and Select Insert Table of content it appears like this:

1. Table of Content
2. Heading 1
2.1 Heading2
3. Heading 1
3.1 Heading 2

But I want it like this:

Table of Content
1 Heading 1
1.1 Heading 2
2 Heading 1
2.1 Heading 2

What is wrong? Can somebody please give me a hint?

It appears that you are using the same heading list for all your headings. Since it is a numbered list, with numbering controlled by what is called a list style, the first heading get s a number, too.

What you require is a separate paragraph style for the TOC heading. If you open your styles pane and click on the Options link at the very bottom, a dialogue will open. Select All styles from the first dropdown list, then exit that box and scroll down through the styles in the pane. You will find TOC Heading already there. Right click on it, choose Modify, and then style the heading to match your others (if desired). Apply this style to your TOC heading.

Then, in the Table of Contents creation dialogue, check this style to be included in your TOC so that it will show up.
