Hi

Is it possible to add a cover page while generating a Word output. I did see the option to add a cover page for PDF but not in Word.

I think in this version the answer is "it depends". There is no provision for one but if you don't want a TOC at the beginning of the document, you could add the cover page as the first topic in the Word output. You could then add a TOC in Word.

 

It's that or produce with the TOC and add a cover page in Word.

Hi Peter

I just came across a help document by Adobe: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/robohelp/using/table-of-contents.html#toc_book and it says

With RoboHelp, you can create two types of TOCs: "Online TOC" and "Book TOC". The Online TOC has sections and topics and is applicable for Frameless, Responsive HTML5, and other online outputs whereas, the Book TOC has front matter and back matter useful for PDF and Word outputs.

I couldn't find the option to create a Book TOC in my Frameless project that could help me in adding a cover page to my Word doc.

Have you come across the feature mentioned in the article?

That article applies to RoboHelp 2020 released today. It has the same problem re headers and footers as your other thread.

 

To add a cover page in 2019 you create it as a topic and put it first in the TOC used to generate the Word output and tag it out of others. Of course if you include a TOC in the document, that will precede the cover page so the practical answer is to add it in Word.

 

In 2020 you can add a cover page in front of the TOC. There the issue will be it's headers and footers on all sections or none.
