TOC not expanded in mobile output by default

Hi! I am using RoboHelp 2022.0.346 to generate Responsive HTML output using Azure template. In the desktop view, I can see that the TOC is expanded by default in the left window. However, in the mobile view the TOC is not expanded and only the first topic is seen. The TOC expands when I click on the first topic. How can I get the complete TOC by default in the mobile view as well? Please help.

Thanks!

Kalyani.

Ah, that drill-down/accordion menu in the Azure Blue skin. I don't think you can change that behaviour through the interface. Do check all the options in the output preset and the skin for anything that looks relevant though.  And as Jeff suggested, check the other Responsive skins to see if they behave differently. Additionally, Frameless output is more configurable, so you could look at changing your output type if one of the frameless skins works the way you want, or has a configuration optio

Is this the same as this thread? - https://community.adobe.com/t5/robohelp-discussions/first-book-expanded-by-default-toc/td-p/14099022
If not, maybe it's just a function of that Azure template - have you experimented with any others to see if they behave the same way?

Hi! Thanks for the reply! The thread you have mentioned is not exactly the same problem that I am trying to solve. I am ok with the first topic being expanded but I want the TOC to be shown completely and not just the first topic.

This is the desktop view where the TOC is expanded by default:

This is the mobile view where only the first topic is seen:

Kalyani360180101bnn_1-1710311356401.png

When 'Introduction' is clicked it expands to the complete TOC as in the desktop view. How can I get the mobile view to show the complete TOC by default instead of just the first topic 'Introduction' using the Azure template? Any pointers would be helpful. Thanks!

You are also not on the latest version of Robohelp 2022. We are up to Update 3 as of today. You should upgrade and check the behaviour in case something changed in one of the patches. You can also double-check changes by following the links in this post: https://community.adobe.com/t5/robohelp-discussions/update-3-of-robohelp-2022-release-is-now-availab...

I'd do the update first and test again (good catch @Amebr !). If that has no impact, test it with another of the templates to see if it's an "Azure" issue or something else. If other templates behave the same way, then the next test is to try using the sample project to see if it works or not. If it does, then that indicates that there's something in your project that's tripping it up. If it doesn't work, then it's time to contact the RH folks either by email or through the Tracker.

Hi, thanks for your reply!

As suggested by @Amebr , I changed the following setting in "usersettings.js" file to false and the TOC expands by default now on the mobile as well. 

model.publish(rh.consts("KEY_MOBILE_TOC_DRILL_DOWN"), true);

I have to change the setting everytime the output is generated to achieve the desired output.

Additionally, Frameless output is more configurable, so you could look at changing your output type if one of the frameless skins works the way you want, or has a configuration option for that behaviour.

 

If you can't find anything any of those locations, you could try changing a setting in the output - this change would need to be made every time you generate however. (If you have a friendly developer, should be able to set it up as a Post-Generation Script in the output preset.)

 

I don't have access to RH2022 right now, but in the output, look for a "usersettings.js" file. Open it in a text editor and look for the line 

model.publish(rh.consts("KEY_MOBILE_TOC_DRILL_DOWN"), true);

 

Change 'true' to 'false'.

 

If that exists in RH2022, then the output should now use the expanding toc rather than drilldown.

 

(You could also turn off the Responsive setting in the skin, but that changes the toc display to something rather inconvenient and confusing on mobile.)

I'm glad it worked. (And if you do have a friendly developer, they should be able to write a script that you can specify in the Post Generation Script field to change it automatically every time you generate.)
