Creates a new topic file in the Table of Contents (TOC) or the Project Files section. See Creating new topics.for more details.
This dialog is displayed when you select one of Add Topic options. It creates a new topic, a new chapter or a TOC item linked to web page or another help file.
Creates a new topic with a TOC entry (in the TOC) or a new topic file without a TOC entry (in Project Files). The topic automatically becomes a "chapter" as soon as it has sub-topics.
When you select the function in the Project Files section you can only add topic files, no other options are available.
Allows you to enter multiple topics at the same time, for example by pasting a list of topic titles that you want to use as captions. Each line of text entered in the Item Captions: field will create a new topic with that text as the caption in the TOC. The topic IDs are generated automatically from the caption texts.
This option can create two types of links:
Link to a topic in this project:
Creates an additional link to an existing topic in the current project. See Multiple TOC entries for one topic for more details on this subject.
Link to a web address:
Instead of displaying a topic this displays a web page with the URL you enter here. You must include the http:// prefix if the address, otherwise it won't work.
After creating the TOC entry you can specify the target of the link on the right:
TOC link targets in different output formats:
Instead of creating a new topic file this creates a TOC item that is a link to a topic in another CHM help file. When the user clicks on the TOC entry the topic from the other help file is displayed.
This only works in HTML Help!
The target topic must be the same format as the main help file – you can't link between help files of different formats.
Creates a topic that references a web page on the Internet:
•In eBooks selecting the topic in the TOC opens the referenced web page in an external browser window.
•In HTML Help and WebHelp selecting the topic the page can be opened inside the help viewer, as part of the help, or in an external window.
•In PDF and Word DOCX the topic is ignored and is not included in the output.
Inserts a placeholder for another Help+Manual project, turning the current project into a master/parent project. When you publish the master project the TOC of the child project will be added to that of the master project.
