HI WKRP and welcome to our community
I suspect you are referring to the Table of Contents and not the Index. If I'm correct, there are a couple of things you should do.
Edit your default window. Expand the Windows pseudo folder and double-click the window. Then ensure a check mark appears next to the Auto-synchronize TOC option. (It's in the lower left corner of the dialog)
The other thing to do is to check the settings for the TOC. Edit the Single Source Layout file. Expand the Single Source Layouts pseudo folder and double-click the Microsoft HTML Help layout. Click the Advanced button. Now click the TOC Styles tab. Ensure a check mark appears next to the Always Show Selection option.
Give those a go and I'm guessing you will have what you want.
I have a similar problem - the toc is not aligning with a topic called as context-sensitive Help. I have checked both items mentioned. The difference in my case is that the window used to display cs help has the "Hide Nav Pane at Startup" option checked.
When I click the Show button, the TOC appears with a gray hilight on the first topic.
Is there a way to sync the toc with the current topic if the window hides it at startup?
I believe this is a bug in the HTML Help viewer for which there isn't a workaround, other than perhaps to add a Locate button to the button bar so that the user can manually synchronise the TOC. It appears that if the navigation pane doesn't have the focus at start-up, the autosync function doesn't work properly when you subsequently open the pane.
Thanks for your reply, Pete.
Not the answer I wanted, but an answer nonethless.
