Hmm, I don't have the most recent copy of FrameMaker, but I believe you can name your styles anything you want and create a table of contents from any style names. You just have to set it up to select those styles.

That does seem like a weird inconsistency, though.

Hello everyone,

Sorry if this is a rudimentary question, but I'm coming back to tech
writing after a few years away. I just downloaded a trial version of the
Adobe Technical Communication Suite, which includes FrameMaker and
RoboHelp, figuring they would play together nicely.

So I wrote a sample manual in FrameMaker, using the styles Heading1,
Heading2, Heading3, etc. -- the defaults needed to create a table of
contents.

However, when I imported it into RoboHelp, it didn't create separate
topics out of each of these headings...instead I see that RoboHelp is
looking for Heading 1, Heading 2, Heading 3 -- note the space between the
word and number.

Has anyone else dealt with this?

Thanks!
