When you double click the map file under Context Sensitive Help, there is an automap button.
I believe this will assign all new numbers, is that what you want in an existing project?
You mention WebHelp Pro. You do remember that needs RoboEngine? :-)
What is Robo Engine?
If you need to ask that, it suggests you should not generating a WebHelp Pro output as that is designed to be published to a server running RoboHelp Engine. That gives you various additional features.
I suspect that if you look at your various projects you are most likely generating WebHelp as the default output.
See www.robowizard.com and look in the Monthly Scry section for a full explanation of the two outputs. Sorry I cannot give you the exact link as I am not using my usual PC.
Thanks for the help. I didn't realize the different between the webhelp and webhelp pro. I am now confused as to how a web application gets linked to the Robohelp. I have looked at the WebHelp Resource Guide and it states that the application programmer develops the applications, adding Help icons that link to the WebHelp's start page, or to the specified HTML files. Will the programmer need to use Map ID's, or actual HTML file name? Do I make any sense at all? I'm so confused.
Back to the auto-mapping question: I don't see an automap button. When I expand the Map files folder, I see "All Map IDs", and the "BSSCDefault.h". Neither one of them expand to show anything else. And this is a new project that I just imported from Word.
