there is


which will probably work the other way round (in the same it works in 

- define a TOC as collecting a defined set of paragraph styles (h1, h2, 
h3) and
- create on demand a TOC with a set of paragraph styles (toc1, toc2, 
toc3, ...)

you will be able to define multiple TOC rules.

i'm stuck at setting the paragraph styles from the plugin.
the style gets applied but the change is not rendered until you deselect 
the frame.

btw, if anybody has an idea how to get this function


to work correctly, i'm happy for any hint!
