RH2020 - Word Output Preset - How do you specify which topics to include in a Word doc generation?

We just recently upgraded from RH 2017 to RH 2020. Our production process requires us to create drafts of specific topics from the Help system as MS Word documents.

 

In RH 2017, the generation dialog box for Word drafts had a page that allowed us to select specfic topics to include in the document. I don't see anything like that in Word preset interface in RH 2020. It appears that if you want to generate a Word draft you have to do it for the entire Help system, which we don't want to do.

 

I know the Review tab in RH 2020 allows you to select topics, but those review drafts can only be used by coworkers that have RH 2020, which won't work for us. Our Word draft go to people who don't have access to RH.

 

So how do we generate a Word draft of specific topics using RH 2020?

 

Thanks

In the Word preset you have to select a TOC. Create a TOC that contains just the topics you want. These topics should help you.

That was the direction we thought we needed to go, but wanted to be sure.

Thanks Peter for the confirmation and the article links.
