How do I control the order of topics in a PDF for review in RoboHelp


If you’re planning to create PDFs for review using RoboHelp 9, here’s a quick tip that will help you control the order of topics in the PDF. By default, RoboHelp uses the order of topics in the Project Files folder while creating the PDF. This is the same order that you see in the Create PDF for Review dialog box.

Topic order is as per the order in Project Files and not the TOC

The important point to remember here is that RoboHelp does not use the order of topics in the TOC. So before you create a PDF for review, make sure that the Project Files folder displays the topics in the order in which you want reviewers to view or read the topics. If required, rearrange the topics by drag-and-drop. An extra step but worth the trouble as the results are exactly what you want.
