Restoring an accidentally deleted TOC?

While adding and deleting and moving items from a TOC in RoboHelp 2020, I selected a topic for deleting, and it surprisingly deleted the entire TOC. There was probably a slight lag in my cursor.

 

I tried Edit > Undo to bring it back, but had no luck. Then I did a search to see if there might have been a previous version of the TOC that was saved somewhere, and there wasn't.

 

Is there a proper way to restore a TOC in a case like this?  (It's happened a few times today so now I'm doing auto backups of my RoboHelp project every hour LOL)

Make sure you click inside the Table of Contents panel before you try Edit > Undo, as the cursor actually flips to the topic if one is open. So the Edit > Undo action will be acting on the topic instead.

 

If Edit > Undo doesn't work, then a back up or re-creating the toc.

Oh. also, my reply assumes you are editing the TOC in the Table of Contents panel, rather than opening the table of contents as a tab in the main editing area.
