Nested styling for first level entries in table of contents

Nested styling for first level entries in table of contents

Nested styling for first level entries in table of contents

(OP)
Hi everyone,

I have table of contents that I've done in Indesign CS4. I'm trying to make the first level entries bold but I only want the text to be bold up to the point where the leader dots start. The text is formatted with a paragraph style so I thought that I could use nested styles to achieve the effect. Only problem is that I can't find a way to specify that I only want the bold to go as far as the text prior to the leaders.

Does anyone know how to do this or if it's possible?

Appreciate any help.

RE: Nested styling for first level entries in table of contents

In the nested style put

Bold up to 1 \t
None up to end of nested style

(or ^t can't remember which one; if it's a right indent tab then it's \y or ^y)
