I have TSC 2015. I am trying to setup Responsive HTML Help using FrameMaker. I have the following questions.
1. In the ToC pane, how can I make the headings be nested. We have level 1, 2, 3. Heading 3 is displayed at the same level as Heading 2.
2. The topic headings of the Chapters use the file names. i.e. in the ToC page I see a file name, and not the Heading 1. How can we set this.
3. Is it possible to set graphics as thumbnails.
4. Also, the titles appear in a blue bar. How can I change this?
5. We don't use all the files in the help file, therefore I have made a separate book file for the help. Is that the way to go?
a. To create TOC navigation levels in Book TOC
We determine TOC level by setting the Para Tag property:
- First Indent,
- Font Size,
- Font weight
i.e. If you wish to have Heading3 appear inside Heading2 - keep any of the above property of the Heading2TOC > than Heading3TOC respectively.
b. To create TOC navigation levels in Dita
For DITA map content, it is currently controlled through 'ParaTags' setting in 'BookWithFM-TOC' section of "ditafm-output.ini". Currently it is up to 2 levels with title.0 (chapter title) and title.1(section title) are included in the TOC.
Example to change it up to 4 levels
This could be done using the TOC. Please have a look at demo book kept at FM install folder (Help >> Samples): C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\AdobeFrameMaker2015\Samples\UserGuide
The titles could be changed by (Publish Pod >> Edit Settings >> Title)
Its OK if it suits your workflow. Another way would be to exclude files from the book. Book file >> right click on a file >> exclude and then publish.
All of the questions were how to make all of this work in the Responsive HTML Help that I am creating.
The Table of Contents, and titles obviously all appear correctly and work in the FrameMaker files and books. The question is, how to make the Table of Contents created in the Help file, reflect the structure of the Table of Contents in the FrameMaker file; and how to make the Headings and not file names, appear in the Help Contents. Same for the other questions.
Can I make all of the changes that I asked about using the FrameMaker configuration settings, or do I have to configure all of this using RoboHelp?
Yes, you can make all configuration changes via FM.
To bring Headings and not filenames:

Caroline... did you ever get this figured out?
I'm trying my first html5 version of a doc and I *was* getting the heading and heading # for the top level, but then it switched to doing your problem -- showing the document name instead of the top level heading. ARgh.
I have *no* idea what setting could have changed and this is driving me crazy 🙂
Did any of you found out how to get it right?
Four years later, I have the same problem and haven't found anything about it except this forum entry.
The first item of B should be "bac blanc" (with the exact same style as "Barème" or "Base" which turn out right) and not "B", which is the name of the file.
Is this a bug or a feature that can be overcome - and how?
What's it look like in your TOC & what version of FM?
