      If you right click over the Topic names and uncheck Show
      Headings, you will not run into that "problem." If you like to
      Show Headings, then do not delete, cut, or paste over the first
      line in the Topic contents for it is the Heading. ;)

      I don't quite understand your question but if you mean to recover
      the Outline Topic Heading:

      Only if:
      You do not save the file and then Reload Document.
      You do not save the file and close without saving.
      You may use Undo in the unsaved state.
      You saved the file but have not closed it and you use the Undo
      tool *if* you have Undo after save checked.

      If you are talking about the text file had a title in it and you
      saved/closed the file after it was removed, no, it has gone out
      to never never land somewhere.

      Happy NoteTab'n,
