TOC to spreadsheet ?

Postby ghillerson on Wed Sep 23, 2015 9:44 pm

I need to produce a spreadsheet that presents the hierarchy of topics/top-level headings in a large docs project, i.e. like a fully expanded table of contents. We're working with a project that contains 5 "books" packaged into one top-nav HTML5 web. We also generate separate PDF for each book.

Is there a straightforward way to do this with Flare (or Analyzer) ? Otherwise, I can make it work by generating a PDF and transforming it into a csv file and then doing some manual work.

Thanks,
Gary

Open up your TOC, and then view it in Grid view not Tree view - there is a toggle on the TOC Editor menu bar.
Once in that view you can save to a CSV file.

Thank you, Margaret. I've never used grid view before :-)

Is there anyway to have the title show up in the CSV in the text and not coded as the link?
