From memory (as I haven't got my RH8 laptop here today) your TOC can be found inside the Project Set-Up pod with your index and glossary. If you double click on the default TOC, it opens in its own pod allowing you to chang it. As you add other TOCs, these also open in their own pod. In much the same way as the topics do. You just need to specify which TOC to use inside the properties of your single source layout. Obviously, the default TOC is specified by default.
Read the RoboColum(n) for mutterings on RoboHelp, Technical Communication Suite and technical communication.
What foxed me was they talked about a pod but the TOC as you've so kindly pointed out was in the project explorer view.
I sincerely hope everyone that encounters this will take the time to log a bug with Adobe on this. As they refer to the TOC/Index/Glossary/See Also as pods, they should really have a place on the View > Pods menu, no?

It's actually in Project Manager (not Project Set-up).
<rant> Yes, I hope they have this as a bug, or at least something to add as a Help topic. Very unhelpful to have help topics about how to create TOCs where the first step is "open TOC pod" but search as one might (I did for nearly an hour) - nowhere can an instruction be found about how to do that.

Thank gawd for forums and the helpful people here = )
Use the Community Help commenting and add a comment to that topic saying that step one should continue "by double clicking the required TOC in Project Manager."

Hi Peter - I did this - made a note in the Community Help, and then it was removed as being a 'feature request'. Arrggghhh.... heavy sigh. I tried.
Worked fine for me when I just added Peter's wording (didn't use the Community Help part though, just the public comments.)
okee doke - live & learn
OK - important thing is to know it is there for the next person - thanks
