The Help Context Tool

The Help Context Tool helps to manage the help context numbers in your project and it can also be used to generate topic files automatically from map files containing a list of topic IDs and context numbers (this will normally be supplied by your programmers).

You can assign, delete, import and export help context numbers in batch mode for your entire project.

Note that you cannot import help context numbers to anchors, even though you can export help context map files with anchor information. Also, you can only import one help context number per topic with the context tool. Multiple numbers must be added manually.
