Creating new topics in the TOC

You create a new topics in two places: In your project's Table of Contents (TOC) or the Project Files section. Creating a new topic in the TOC creates a TOC entry and a topic file and links the TOC entry to the topic file. Creating a new topic in Project Files creates a topic file without a TOC entry.

The instructions below explain how to create topics with TOC entries. See Creating new topics in Topic Files for instructions on creating topics without TOC entries.
