Hi Ginger

In the HTML Help Workshop, look at the following settings:

Click the Project tab. Below this tab are some icons running down the left side of the application. Click the third icon. It should reveal a dialog labeled "Window Types".

Click the tab labeled "Navigation Pane". You should see an area labeled "Properties". In this area should be a check box labeled "Auto sync". Click to place a check mark in this check box. This should cause the displayed topic to automatically synchronize with the TOC (If, in fact it exists in the TOC structure)

Click OK to dismiss the dialog.

As a final step, you should also consider ensuring the following settings are enabled.

Click the Contents tab.
Click the first icon below the tab. This should reveal a "Table of Contents Properties" dialog. Click the Styles tab, followed by the Add... button. Choose the item "Show selection when focus lost".

Give these a go and see if they help. Hopefully they will!

Cheers... Rick :)
