Hi

I have noticed two issues while generating a Word ouptut:

  1. The TOC page displays the heading as just Contents and not Table of Contents. Is there any setting in RH so that the Word ouptut shows Table of Contents and not Contents or do I need to manually change it in the generated Word doc?
  2. Master Pages - I have a master page to show the Header and Footer in the Word output. But unfortunately, the master page is not getting applied. Any ideas on why it could be so?

  1. Yes you need to change it manually.
  2. You have to create a Word template for headers and footers. I think you will then find the automapping of styles defaults to anything in that master page so you will have to change the mapping to your CSS styles. The headers and footers will be applied to all pages in the document.

Hi Peter

Are you saying the header and footer will not get applied until and unless I have a Word template and then map it to the CSS styles?

Also, is there a way to specify separate header and footer within RH or do I need to get this done through the Word template or manually change it in the Word output doc?

The above options are available while generating a PDF. Maybe RH could have included the same options for Word too.

Moreover, in RH2017, we have the option to set separate header and footer for TOC, topics, Index and Glossary. Adobe must have retained these features in RH2019.

No and yes.

They could have. 🙂

I know they were in 2017 but they are not in 2019.

 

I agree entirely this functionality is needed.
