In order to create a new topic, you simply format the topic heading paragraph with a style that is mapped to a Topic. There are several ways in Microsoft Word to apply a certain style. The following procedure shows the most common methods used to apply a heading style.
Note The following procedures assume that the heading styles Heading 1 through Heading 6 are mapped to a Topic. The heading level determines the level the topic appears in the table of contents. The first topic in a help document should always be formatted with the style Heading 1.
All templates and themes installed with Help Producer create these mappings automatically. If you do not use a Help Producer template and theme, you need to establish the style mapping yourself. See the topic Style Mappings for details.
