The AuthorTools "Make Contents" palette in Mathematica 5.1 just doesn't seem to want to create or save a notebook TOC on a single-user Mac iBook G4 running OS 10.3.9. I have a working (and correctly evaluating) notebook with Section/Subsection/Subsubsection headings in it. With this notebook open, the AuthorTools palette opens fine from the File >> Palettes >> OpenAuthorsTools menu, and the MakeContents and other sub-palettes open fine from it . . . but MakeContents doesn't. Any time I click on the Make Simple Contents button after doing some editing in the notebook involved, I get the dialog box saying the notebook must be saved to use Make Contents. So, I do a Save and try the Make Simple Contents button again . . . but nothing visible happens, and no TOC (that I can find, anyway) seems to get created, or at least to appear in the Finder. If I click inside any one cell, then click the Make Simple Contents button, the title bar of the active notebook flashes to "Running . . " for just a second (this doesn't happen above). If I select one or multiple or all cells and click, this flash doesn't happen. I can change various MakeContents options using the SelectedCellStyles or ContentsFileName buttons, and these changes stick. If I open the NotebookDifferences subpalette and click the Notebooks... button, the dialog box that opens shows the notebook I'm working on as the first notebook. But no TOC (that I can find, anyway) ever seems to get created, or at least appear in the Finder. I've restarted the Mac, and also reinstalled Mathematica 5.1 from the original CD; no change. ???????????????????
