... here is another solution, manipulating the TOC format, which I use some times:
1. Create a new style, say "Dedication", and assign this style to the
text you want hidden in the document body (i.e. the dedication
heading). You can then make the style hidden. This is under Font
Effects in the Paragraph Style window and at the bottom of the left
Yes, I think that is close to what Luuk proposed, except that he hid "Dedication:" by making the
font color white rather than using the Hidden attribute (prompting my question in that regard) ...
2. Edit the TOC, and assign the style "Dedication" to, say, Level 10.
To do this, under the Index/Table tab, check Additional Styles and
the ellipses button [...]. In the popup, select the Dedication style
on the left and then using the >> button, move it to level 10 on the
right and click OK.
... and here you have done what I would have done: make the "Dedication" style explicitly part of

3. Now under the Entries tab, select Level 10 and delete everything to
the left of the "T" in the Structure format line. Then in the text
block before the T, add "Dedication" (no quotes). This is needed
because hiding the text in the Dedication paragraph style propagates
to the Contents style in the TOC and it is hidden in the TOC as
well. This is a sledge hammer approach and the two texts need to
match, or maybe not, as you wish.
This may be the reason for using White font color rather than the Hidden attribute...
4. Then under the Styles tab, select the Paragraph Style you want to
use for the Level 10 TOC line (do not select Dedication!), usually a

Thanks for explaining in such detail. As I said, I think it is close to what Luuk proposed, except that in step 2 you do what I
would do to establish the indexing reference (if using "Additional styles" indexing), and I still don't see how Luuk
did it. Did you see what Michael H proposed, using "Index marks" rather than "Additional styles"? That seems
the cleanest way to do this.
