My experience with FM 8 and RH 7 is the same; however, I fixed the TOC problem.
It's very important how the FM TOC file looks like. You cannot use inline bold or character specific styles applied to the paragraph styles used to create your TOC. When you import the TOC file you should not do anything with it ... just let RH generate the output based on the TOC. IOW, it's VERY important that you prepare your FM files before using RH. They're certainly not a match made in heaven!
The only problem I have these days is to successfully recreate a numbered list with proper indentation. RH does not map these things automatically in any sensible way (at least not as far as I know). For now it seems I'm stuck with ordered lists that show the number as part of the paragraph which is not good as it's poor typography.
So, basically RH 7's integration with FM 8 has some serious usability issues ... :)
Best of luck,
Thanks! In addition to your comments, other sources have reinforced my perception that RoboHelp 7 is yet another of Adobe's Big Ideas that didn't really come to complete fruition. And as always, the "solution" is the for-a-fee upgrade to the next version that'll make the product work as any sensible customer ought to expect, right? 8^p
Cheers & thanks 'gain,
I got an answer to the problems related to numbered and bulleted lists; however, there is a flaw in RH 7 that may cause some more headaches.
