I'm trying to create a Table of Content, but for some reason I only get a title, but no content. I created a document with different Headers starting for Header1 to Header4.

I'm asking to create a Table of Content and change the Evaluation of Level up till 4. But I only get the title "Table of Contents" nothing more.

What am i doing wrong?

Thanks, Filip Langenbick

I successfully create content tables following the standard way to do them.

It is difficult to check the problem without having the document you created. Could you upload the document somewhere so we could test it?

Maybe it's just a typo, but the standard headings in LO are labelled Heading 1, Heading 2, etc. Make sure the headings you are using have Outline levels that will be picked up by the ToC. To do that, right-click on the heading, and select Modify, or Edit Style. Then go to the Outline tab and check the level.

Great, thanks,

The outline level was set to body text. By changing this I got the right Table of Content.

Thanks very much,
