Creating a new topic in an opened project can be achieved via two ways:

  • Select the "Home" ribbon tab then click the upper part of the "Add topic" button
  • Right click on any existing topic in the table of contents (including the project topic) and click the left part of the "Add topic" menu item


By default, a new topic is added at the bottom of the table of contents and becomes the last topic overall. HelpNDoc can optionally create a new topic at the following positions:

  • Before the currently selected topic
  • After the currently selected topic
  • As a child of the currently selected topic
  • As the last topic overall (Default behavior)


These actions are available from a sub-menu which can be accessed via the following ways:

  • Select the "Home" ribbon tab then click the arrow on the bottom part of the "Add topic" button
  • Right click on any existing topic in the table of contents (including the project topic) and hover the arrow on the right part of the "Add topic" menu item


When a new topic is created, its title will become selected and editable for easier modification: it becomes faster to create multiple topics and rename them.
