table of contents font sizes not matching

In a table of contents that I have made, some of the fonts are not in accordance to the styles that I have used throughout the document. For example

Chapter 1 (is heading 1 and is 26 font size and blue) it shows up larger than the others, blue and further to the left than the other listings. I am happy with that.

Heading 2s and heading 3s however, seem to not be showing up the way I would like them to be. I want heading 2 to be font size 14 but they are sometimes 12 and sometimes 14. In the document they are all 18 and set by styles. Heading 3 are also sometimes 12 and sometimes 14, but set to 16 in the document.

Is there a way to format these headings specifically for the table of contents? Thank you in advance

Heading 2s and heading 3s however, seem to not be showing up the way I would like them to be. I want my TOC to be like this

Chapter 1 (font 20 set from style Heading 1)........................................................pg 1 Section 1 (font 16 set from style Heading 2)....................................................pg 1 Subsection 1 (font 14 set from style heading 3)..........................................pg 1 Chapter 2 to be font size (font 26 set from style Heading 1)........................................................pg 2 Section 1 (font 16 set from style Heading 2)....................................................pg 2 Subsection 1 (font 14 but they are sometimes 12 and sometimes 14. In the document they set from style heading 3)..........................................pg 2

The problem is that the TOC is not pulling the formatting from the sources. the section and subsection titles are all 14 font whereas in the document, and the styles themselves are set to font 18 and set by styles. Heading 3 are also sometimes 12 and sometimes 14, but set to 16 in the document.respectively.

All I really want is that from Chapter to subsection they be larger to smaller fonts.

Is there a way to format these headings specifically set the formatting for the table of contents? TOC separately?

To further complicate things, the book and TOC has Arabic and English. For whatever reason, all of the Arabic shows up in the TOC as font 12 and the English as 14.

I tried to clear direct formatting but that changed the layout of my entire nearly 200 page document. Is that something I can avoid?

Thank you in advance
