I like this program but there are some things about it that just leave me scratching my head. One such thing is Alphabetizing TOC. Can someone tell me how to do this?

Which version of Robohelp are you using? If RH2019 are you using Classic or New UI? The answer will depend on which you are using.

The Contents panel shows you topics in folder name alphabetical order and within the folders the topics are also in alphabetical order. If you create a new TOC and then right click in the blank area of the TOC you can Auto Create the TOC. That will follow the same order as the Contents panel. That seems to be close to what you want.

I would note that the order is alphabetical based on the file name, not the topic title, so if your topic title is different from the file name the order might not match your expectations.

 

For example, if your topic file name is "about_widgets.htm" and the title is "Widgets" it will appear in the "a" section of the auto-created toc, not in the "w" section.
