Why some of the headings are not listed in the table of content?
Make sure you have not unchecked any heading from the settings. Also, the headings must be actually tagged under html headings tag (H1, H2 etc) and not just bold with increased font size.
My custom css is not working.
Please make sure you are using the right css class or id. If css still does not work, try using the !important attribute.
