So you know where I'm coming from:
• I'm a user, not an L&L employee.
• Mac Scrivener 2.9 & 3.0.0, MacBook Air 11, MacOS 10.12.6 (Sierra)
• iOS Scrivener 1.1.4, iPhone 6s, iPad Air 2, iOS 11.2

I tried this, having read your post, and got the same result.

Managed to make it work with either:

1. Marking the <$toc> with Preserve Formatting.

OR

2. Creating a unique section type for the <$toc> page and then assigning a simple text section layout to that section type in the compile settings.

Both of the methods above worked to produce a proper table of contents, but the Kindle app on macOS plonked the contents at the start of the book, even though I had set the <$toc> to be the final page. Don't have a Kindle device to try it on.

I’ve fixed this for the next update.
Best,

I haven't figured out how to make a post of on own instead of in a thread. I just upgraded and now I can't find one of the manuscripts I was working on and getting very afraid. I know that Scrivener automatically saves, but after the upgrade I can't seem to find the file that I've been working on for a past few months. Any ideas?

Thanks so much, Keith! @CINDYWHO, Have you tried File > Find All Projects in Spotlight ?
