    Generating webhelp from multiple topics in a project

    MSpring

      I'm trying to generate webhelp with RoboHelp using multiple topics in a project. However, when I view results, the titles of the individual topics do not show up in the contents and only one of the topics is formatted as a RoboHelp "panel".

       

      When generating webhelp for a project with multiple topics, how do you get each topic in the project to format and appear by there title name in "Contents" as TOC entries?

          Hi there

           

          So many questions here. So let's start from the basics.

           

          Did you create a TOC? Note that while RoboHelp does offer an ability to automatically create one for you, it is up to you as the help author to tell RoboHelp to create the TOC.

           

          Assuming you have created a TOC and are still having issues, are you using Conditional Build Tags to exclude information? If so, that may explain things.

           

          Can you share a screen capture of what your TOC looks like in the editor and what your output looks like?

           

          Cheers... Rick

            Thanks Rick.  You're right there are a number of questions here. I did create a TOC and then included that as part of the layout. That helped. However, when I use the "Show" and "Hide" buttons. After I "Hide" the TOC and go back to view it, It disappears from the Contents.

            I'm not using conditional build tags, as I imported separate "Word" files to make up each topic.  I do keep getting a message that JavaScript is disabled and to view "Click Here" Not sure if this has anything to do with the inability of the WebHelp to sustain the TOC as part of the Contents. 

             

            Thanks for your input.

              Are you using IE version 11? I saw some threads over the past week or two where that is causing headaches. Lemme go find one and post a link.
