I sympathise with you Marian83.
I'd edit the map file and alias file (don't forget that) in a text editor (e.g. notepad). It is far easier and quicker. It may still be manual but it does negate the need to use that awful mapid dialog.
Since you are converting from WinHelp, there are some differences you need to be aware of. As Colum said - don't forget the alias file. What is an "alias file?" you may ask. In WinHelp 'aliases' were used to asign a different map number to the same topic. In HTMLHelp, they are a totally different species.
One of the design ideas of HTMLHelp was that the developer and help author would work independently on conrtext sensitive help. The .h file you have shown is supposed to be the developer's end. Note that it does not contain any references to your topics - just map numbers and somewhat cryptic IDs. The alias file is the help author's end and it links these IDs to your topic file names with the syntax IDD_EVASELECTION=YourTopicName.htm#bookmark. All of these live in an alias file (projectname.ali). These two files together comprise your context sensitive help.
Hope this helps,
Hi, the developer could already figure out that I need a *.ali file that contains the aliases but the strange thing is that Robohelp only converts about 65 map IDs. F.ex. HCUS_LANDCODE=Beheer_basisgegevens\Landcodes.htm
I can't figure out why the other files aren't aliased. Thank you anyway for your help.
