How to output user guide sections as separate webpages?

I have a massive user guide (MS Word file) that has various sections and sub-sections (e.g., 1.2, 1.2.3, etc.). When I output using Webhelp, Responsive HTML5, or any other SSL, the guide is published as one long webpage. I can use the TOC to navigate to selected sections, but I can of course scroll up or down to other sections. Is there a way to isolate and output each section as a separate page, while keeping the comprehensive TOC?

It would be incredibly time-consuming to divide up the actual Word file...then import them individually into Robohelp...

I'm very new to Robohelp, so any help is much appreciated! Thanks!

I have moved this post from the RoboHelp for Word forum, existing links will still work. RoboHelp for Word was a separate product that no longer ships with RoboHelp.

The document can be split according to styles so maybe you can set styles to give the breaks you want. See Importing and Linking on my site.

Thank you! This was very helpful. As you suggested, I used the "Pagination (Split into topics based on this style)" function, which keeps the TOC together nicely.
