I have the latest RH 2017 and Word Version 2002 (12527.20278) from Office 365

 

RoboHelpers,

In RH, I'm trying to create a new folder and chapter in an existing RH project. I'm interested in importing just the structure from Word to get the topics created for this new chapter. (I'll add the actual documentation into each topic later.) To that end, the Word document I'm importing only contains the headings.

 

The topics import fine.

But the TOC is empty.

 

I've created the TOC in the word document with the desired 4 TOC headings. Is this a bug, or am I missing something? Admittedly, it's been a while since I've had to import something from Word but I think I'm doing it right.

 

Any thoughts are appreciated. Thank you for your help.

Nevermind. I got it to work. I think the issue is that I was importing the doc a second time and the second time through I chose not to overwrite the already imported .htm files.

Once I re-imported a third time and I chose to overwrite the existing topics, the TOC entries were created.
