I upgraded to RH 2020.3.32 and now, in either new or existing projects that have been upgraded, I can no longer reorder topics in a TOC using drag and drop:

Has something changed? Has anyone else noticed this?

Not a problem I have encountered or seen reported. There should be some dotted lines as you drag and drop, maybe not showing in a screenshot.

 

It shouldn't be necessary but have you rebooted since updating?

 

Same in the About RoboHelp sample project?

Hi,

I have exactly the same issue. It was present also in the last version (2020 2.whatever was the latest before 3.32).

I upgraded last night, and the computer has been off since then, so I certainly rebooted 🙂

  1. Can you move the items using the arrow keys? I realise that's not ideal, I'm just trying to ascertain what you can and can't do.
  2. Can you drag new items from the contents panel.
  3. If you create a new TOC can you drag and drop there?

Hi Peter,

I can move them using the arrow menu.

I can't drag them in from the Topic List, which I could yesterday.

A new TOC doesn't have the functionality.

New projects are also affected for me (I happened to have one open!)

I can't tell from the screenshots whether you are editing in the TOC panel or the authoring area. The former has been blocked for technical reasons. Open the TOC in the authoring area and you should be OK.

There's a TOC authoring panel????????

Ok, I've got it. Double-click on the TOC and it opens in the area that you edit topics.

I've been using this version for two days now, and I'm already baffled how they came up with such an awful UI. Intuative it is not.

And yes, it works for me.

Thanks Peter, I would have never got that, as each time I clicked on the TOC, it opened out the TOC underneath.

Doubling cliking, who would have thought it?

To be correct there's an authoring area that is multi-purpose. You can also use the menu on the TOC name bar and select Edit.

 

I disagree that the UI is unintuitive. It's very different and takes some getting used to. After a while though it all falls into place. Take a look at the About RoboHelp sample project or the RoboHelp Tour on my site. It's all explained there.

 

I didn't like this UI much at first but now I hate it if I have to go back and work on a project in a Classic version for some reason. You then realise it wasn't really intuitive, it was just familiar.

Perhaps. 

But as I'm stuck with using both for the forseable future, I'll just have to see. At the moment I've spent hours of my life tyring to get a TOC in to a PDF with no luck. But I'll start anohter thread on that when I get fed up of going in circles. (And yes, I've downloaded your sample).

Thanks for at least giving me 10% less frustration today!
