Sometimes, a topic has a long title which is displayed on two lines in the Table of Contents (ToC). For the sake of readability, it is better to have one line per ToC entry.

For DITA content, it is possible to customize ToC headings using the DITA <navtitle> element. Fluid Topics uses the value of the <navtitle> metadata key as the ToC entry and as the title.

The following topics provide further details:

  • The DITA map as the source of navtitle
  • The topic as the source of navtitle
  • The topic as the source of title
  • An unsupported case
