When I add a table-of-contents, the default format is "number""text" no space between e.g. 1Objective what I would like to have is "number""space""text" e.g. 1 Objective

I wonder if someone could give me a hint on how to change the contents style.

Right-click in your "Table of Contents"Edit Index/TableEntries tabStructure.
Insert a space in the white field between "E#" (Chapter number) and "E" (Entry).
Press "All" for all levels.

Thank you very much. You not only helped me to solve my problem but also understand a bit of the Entries tab for TOC. Something I did not grasp when reading the help file and user guide

I am having this issue right now. :-) I've tried adding up to 5 spaces, and this has had no visible affect on my output. Is there another setting which could be affecting this?
