Please help me .
Thank you very much.
I think what you are saying is that if you autocreate the TOC, it is based on topics and bookmarks and that you want it to be in some other format.
If that is the case, you will have to manually create your TOC.
Otherwise, I am not understanding the question. Please rephrase it.
Again, when importing XML file into Robohelp HTML page is created.
On the HTML page there are bookmarks.
Question is, how I can create TOPICS in BOOK so that the TOPICS will not create based on bookmarks, rather based on another basis. How and where we can define it?
Is it possible use independent import for BOOKs based on XML file? Then, I will define in this XML file names, hierarchy, and references to HTML pages.
When you say BOOK, do you mean Books in the TOC? If not, what do you mean?
Yes ofcourse I think "Books in the TOC" .
I have already explained the options for creating a TOC so is the problem that the topics are not being created in Project Manager in the way you want when you import. These are two entirely separate things.
When you import, topics are based on heading levels. Once you have imported, the TOC can then be created as I have described.
Can anyone else understand this poster's problem because it is still not clear to me?
Please see this pictures:
1. I imported XML file by XSL transformaton into RoboHelp
I use XSL file, see picture:
2. I have HTML page with my data from this XML file:
3. Automaticaly generated Topics are this:
4. I need automatically generated hierarchical topics on HTML page:
This topics I created manualy.
5. For exapmle: Can I use any new XML tag for create topics ?
Do you understand ?
Read it a few times, but not completely clear. Is he possibly talking about "Using different TOC/Index structures within a compiled .CHM" that Rick describes in his Tips and Tricks?
See Rick's Tips and Tricks here.
Hope this helps
See my pictures now, thanks.
May we could understand if we could see images of a decent size. Any chance of making more than 2cm tall?
Please refresh your browser, I changed link to pictures.
I wrote that : "See my pictures now, thanks. "
I think I now understand the question.
You are using an XML transformation to import your data into RoboHelp.
The process creates topics and bookmarks.
By using AutoCreate TOC, those topics and bookmarks create a TOC as shown in Picture 2. However that is nothing like the TOC you want.
The TOC you want requires a top level book with the same name as the autogenerated TOC but then requires sub-books with names which derive from the hyperlinks that you refer to as Block 1 and Block 2. The topics you show in Picture 3 are presumably the targets of those hyperlinks.
If I am right so far, I cannot see how you can achieve this during the import. I have not tried to do what you are doing but it looks like where you need to be looking is at the project's HHC file. That contains the TOC and if you study that, then creating that file outside of RoboHelp and then putting it in the project root folder might give you what you want. It must have the same name as the project XPJ file.
It is possible. This technique fixed my problem.
