I'm hoping someone can help me. I ran into some problems with a robohelp project (yup, gambled and ran the project over a network and lost) but to make a long story short, I recovered an older back up of the project I had on my computer and then imported all the topics from the broken server version and I'm mostly back in business.
The one thing I don't have though is the more recent TOC and Index Files. I tried just copying and pasting the .hhc and .hhk files from the broken project folder to the recovered project folder but when I'm in Robohelp I still don't see these TOC options?
What can I do?
What version of RoboHelp are you using? If it's a fairly recent version, it should be pretty easy to get the TOC added. For example, in RoboHelp 11, you are able to right-click the TOC folder in the Project Manager and choose "New Table Of Contents". Then you could give it a name, click the ellipsis icon and point at one of the TOCs your copied over. That action would import the structure into a TOC the project would be aware of.
Just don't forget that when you create the output, you will need to choose the desired TOC in the recipe you are using!
you bet and yes, they are. Thanks so much.
So I "had to" move my project around a bunch of times, and also rename it (long story, mostly testing stuff), and my invaluable TOC doesn't appear when I reopen the project.
I truly think all is lost - envisioned rebuilding it, and re-adding ALL its condition tags for the nifty new Filtering option!
Lo and behold, I "go to the Forum" - and there is my answer ... and here is my fabulous TOC, swiftly back in my project.
This Forum is a lifesaver. Not that RH 2015 isn't wonderful, it's just there's so much to learn, and the Help just won't ever fully replace user knowledge!
I mean, who knew that feature existed?
Many thanks, Rick!
