To my knowledge, the topic ID method you are stating was never a feature. Only the hash+PathAndFileName was.
Wondering here if you are confusing the WebHelp API method of calling Context Sensitive Help? I believe the WebHelp API method does use topic IDs, but they are called in a slightly different way. Something like this:
Helpful and Handy Links
The method of adding a number after the # works with the csh start file. Check my overview to see all the possibilities that WebHelp supports: http://www.wvanweelden.eu/robohelp/contextsensitivity_in_webhelp
yes that is what I meant. So it still works in Robohelp 9? Thanks for confirming!
@Rick Actually I really meant calling the help via the start file. You are right the API is more comfortable but some developers always prefer a plain link. Sorry for causing confusion.
#id will not work with the default start file. #filename will work. For #id you must use the XXX_csh.htm start file.
