Learn how to work with Table of Contents in RoboHelp.

A Table of Contents provides a hierarchy of the folders, topics, and any subfolders that you have in the output of your project. This gives the reader an ability to view the Help system as a whole and its individual topics. With a Table of Contents, the reader can quickly select and view a topic of their choice.

You can have multiple Tables of Contents in a single project, depending on the type of output that you want for your readers. For example, you can have a Table of Contents to cater to a specific audience (say, Developers) and another Table of Contents for a different audience (say, End users). You can simultaneously maintain the two Table of Contents files in the Table of Contents panel of a project. At the time of publishing your project, you can then decide which Table of Contents file you want in your output.
