Default TOC: Keep numbers without content

Hello!



I copy and pasted my table of contents from a very large document into another Word document. The new doc only includes the table of contents. The page numbers copied over just fine, but as soon as I try to save as a pdf, the page numbers disappear and an error message appears in its place. How do I keep the page numbers?

Thanks in advance for any help/tips.

In that case, convert the Table of Contents to static text (e.g. via Ctrl-A, Ctrl-Shift-F9).
