How new topics sort
New topics are added to Help Builder by default in the following order:
- Topic Type
This default sort order is applied whenever the set of topics where the topic is inserted has not been explicitly sorted or when you insert a topic as a child of a parent topic.
Overriding default topic insertion order
The default order is not used if you insert a topic in a sorted list and you insert the topic at the current level.
To do this:
- Pick the parent topic of the topics that are to be sorted
- Use the Topic Sorter to arrange topics or just click update to force sort orders as is
- Select the topic after which to insert your topic
- Click New Topic and follow the Wizard
Your new topic is now inserted following the original topic you started from.
Note that if you insert a new topic from the topic above, the topic will again auto-sort using thing original sort order even if the list was previously sorted.
