Need to be able to use some formatting in the TOC, including Font size, possibly color & bold and indenting for easier legibility for a long list. Ideas on how to accomplish this?

Editing the smart_player CSS file is where you would have to do most of the changes.

**Note that doing so is not supported by Techsmith if something breaks so
ALWAYS WORK WITH A COPY OF ANY FILES and have a backup of your project(s)
if you chose to go down this road.

Indenting you can do when you name the markers by first typing ALT + 255 and release the ALT key to make a blank character.  Repeat to make it indent more then type your maker name right after (no space) the last blank character you make.

Example of indenting and editing the CSS file.

to add to what Dubie has suggested, this tutorial might be helpful ...

How To Modify TOC Width And Background Density 2018-02-01
https://www.screencast.com/t/EIdApeQygNh

other properties can be found close by in the section described in the tutorial; I've also changed font colors, etc

not sure if font sizes can be changed because of the type of control used to package the TOC in the smart player?

FYI ... when viewing a video with TOC, and the TOC is open, using ctl-mouse scroll wheel will zoom the TOC; it will get slightly blurry, but the text still looks OK; TOC thumbnails do not zoom so well because the PNC image that holds the thumbnails is too small
