Top-level navigation

Top-level navigation is the tab bar that shows at the top of your documentation pages. This is the default view in the default documentation exporter. It can be turned on and off — if turned off, it will switch to left navigation mode. The structure of your groups and pages always stays the same.

Turn on/off top-level navigation

  1. 1.
    In the top bar, click the view icon (tabs or left column)
  2. 2.
    Your navigation will change automatically
Example of left navigation (top-level off)


A section is any group or page placed at the top level of your documentation tree. If you are using top-level navigation (default), the sections will show as tabs in your menu. If you are using left navigation, they will show up as options in the left menu.
If the section is a page, the navigation will link to that page only. The page section can be used if you want to highlight certain pages that do not belong in a specific category.
