Good afternoon,

I'm authoring a help project using Indigo Layout in RoboHelp 2017, all is well but I have this one functionality that needs to utilize the contents of 1 book inside my TOC. For example, I made a container in my homepage that's labeled as "Downloadable Forms", then in my TOC,  I added a book with the same name and added the baggage files/topics that contains any downloadable forms. Now since RoboHelp fetches all data from xml's through javascript and lists them all as tiles inside the homepage, is there a way for me to fetch and list the data from that particular book and not the entire TOC and put them inside my container?

I'm not super clear as to what you mean when you say "I made a container in my homepage that's labeled as "Downloadable Forms" - is that just a link to a page that's called "Downloadable Forms"? That's what I would have done, then on that page made links to each of the forms (wherever they were located).

Container meaning an html div element that contains all the links from a book in my TOC. To make myself clear, imagine another box section in my homepage labeled as "Downloadable Forms" and in that box, contains all the links I have listed in 1 particular book in my TOC.. I already explored your way but my company requires me to place the links in the homepage for easy accessibility, plus this way we'll only be required to change the contents in the TOC panel.
