I just experimented with the map IDs and when I tried enter 9999999999 as the map ID, I got this error message:
"Please use a number between 1 and 4,294,967,295 for a map number". You cannot enter alpha characters, just numeric.
Does anyone else have a different experience? Still need to know if there's a limit on the number of Map IDs I can have.
Based on the response I would surmise you may have a total of 4,294,967,295 map IDs. I would be astonished to discover you needed more than that.
I don't believe anyone has ever documented the maximum number you may have. As there are help systems out there that are pretty darn massive and I've never heard of anyone encountering an issue with exhausting all possibilities, I'd say you are safe.
Rick, it wasn't that you can have over 4 million map IDs...you just can't enter a map ID number with a value greater than
4294967295. So as far as you know, there is no limit for the amount of map IDs you can have, correct? From what I've tested in RoboHelp 7, you can only enter numeric map ID numbers (guess that's why they call them numbers). It seems like you could use alpha.
To my knowledge there is no limit. But as with anything, there HAS to be SOME limit. But I doubt you would ever hit it.
If you look at the Edit Map IDs dialog, click the Options... button.
Note that the field was empty. I manually typed the IDH_ in there.
Thanks for your help. Our developers will only be using numeric characters, so this will work.
