HelpNDoc gives you the ability to create subtopics (i.e. child topics) to any topic to create a logical structure in your table of contents.

Step 1

There are two ways to create a new child topic:

Click the lower half of Add topic
  • Click the lower half of Add topic in the Home ribbon tab and select Add child topic
Click the lower half of Add topic
  • Right-click your table of contents and hover your mouse on Add topic. Then, select Add child topic

This creates a new child topic in your table of contents.

You can optionally enter the name of the new topic and press Enter.

You're ready to add content. Click the blank page and begin. Or, repeat the steps outlined above to add additional children topics.
