Content page nearly empty

I restructured my code and now my contents page is only showing Books 1 & 2 in Volume 1. Is there a way to get this back? I already tried copy and pasting in a new project.

Have you tried Format > Renumber All Sections?

Sometimes a section can get lumped together with a previous one. You could try looking at the last section/chapter/whatever and see if there is a heading within it that isn’t spaced or punctuated correctly. I think headings need to have empty space above and below them in order to be recognized as headings.

That did not work and actually caused some sort of error that made me unable to edit the source code.

!! Strange. But not the first time the Inform IDE has bugged out on me. I’d copy/paste into another text editor, then restart the IDE and copy back into it.

It won’t go passed Volume 2 in a brand new project. I even deleted and re-downloaded Inform.

Hmm. Special characters? Incompatible line break encodings? Can you copy and paste the beginning of the code into a code block in here?
