I'm using RoboHelp 2019 and I used Indigo template to compile my help. I do not see the Contents option in the menu. See the following screen. Am I doing something wrong? How can I see the TOC where I can browse for topics? Please help,

The TOC is showing in the main topic pane in Indigo. It will show in the sidebar after you click into a topic (for example, Welcome, or a topic inside the "Getting Started" book)
Thanks! It did solve my problem, but in the preview of the Indigo template, it shows that the "Contents" will be available in the menu bar where it is shown in the screen above. So this might be something the Adobe should fix.
It would be so convenient, if it showed like that. It's frustrating now to look for TOC by clicking on a topic and then seeing the TOC. I hope this is resolved soon.
Could you post a screenshot of what you mean by the preview? Do you mean when you are editing the skin?
Sorry it doesn't show in the preview but in the customization window as shown below:
So I assumed that since it is showing here, so it should show in the compiled help too.
So basically, this layout's TOC is visible only when I click at one of the topic square? This is what I did not liked about this layout. I wish they had an option for accessing the TOC in the menu in addition to this.
But, thank you Peter and Amber for your help! I really appreciate your quick response and follow-up. 🙂
I'm guessing that Amber's thinking that you are referring to what you see in the skin editor is correct.
The way this skin works is that initially you see a square for every book in the TOC and a square for every topic that is not in a book. When you drill down, then the sidebar displays.
The skin editor shows the skin with the sidebar to facilitate editing.
Thus what you are seeing is how the skin was designed and is intended to work, not something that needs fixing.
