I hope someone can help me before I destroy my computer and I'm unable
to read your responses!!!

I have spent WAY too much time trying to figure out how to map my Frame
styles to RoboHelp styles so that I don't have to do a bunch of
reformatting every time I update. Upon the advice of another user on
Adobe's RH forum, I created mapping styles in the fmstyles.css file.
However, it seems RoboHelp creates a new css for each section in the
book I imported and I cannot find the fmstyles.css file anywhere in the
project (without returning to the Style Settings window).

To top it all off, I have a custom css that I would like to apply to the
whole project, but I can't figure out how to do this without applying it
to each topic independently and then doing all the formatting manually.

It all looked so easy on Adobe's eSeminar and I could hardly wait to
start using the Tech Comm Suite, but unfortunately the help in that
software is SEVERELY LACKING and I am learning by trial and error.

I hope someone out there has an easy answer for me.
