RH2019 Word Export Table of Contents requires update fields action in Word, and location of ToC

If I include the TOC in a Word export, when you open the destination Word document you get a dialog, 'This document contains fields that may refer to other files. Do you want to update the fields in this document?' which builds the ToC.

It's not a big deal to open the document, accept the prompt and save but for a large document (almost 1000 pages) it takes a while. Is that expected and is there any way to automate this step? 

Secondly; is it possible to locate the Table of Contents somewhere other than right at the start of the output? I'd like to have a title page first which I can probably acheive with a Word template but the more I can do in RH, the better.


Thanks.

I can't help with your first question.

 

Although I've never done it, the help suggests you can include a title page before the toc in Classic, by including a title page document in your project. It seems to have various requirements for content and naming conventions. The quickest way to get to the help for it is to open the output dialog box and click through the wizard to the Print Document Section Layout page, then press F1. When the help opens, click on 2. Page setup.

 

In new UI, I couldn't see any similar customisation options.

Thanks very much for your reply. We're using the new UI, so I expect a Word template cover page will be the approach for the second question.

If by "word template cover page" you mean "manually adding a cover page after generation", then yes. 🙂

Thanks, you're right - I used really big first-page only Headers and Footers in the Template to provide a cover page.

Actually new question about indexing. In the old output the Index was just that; a list of headers (I think, maybe keywords of some sort) in alphabetical order with page numbers. If I include an Index in the new UI edition, I just get a list of topics, and another separate hyperlink entry of the same topic wording. Is that something else that's not done in the new UI yet, or a setting I'm missing?

Thanks

Sorry, I"m not sure. Perhaps look at the Robohelp Reimagined project to see if it provides any information. (I think you should find it in your Documents/My Robohelp Projects folder, but I could be wrong.)
