Hi all -

I am working on a project in RoboHelp 7, and when I generate my Webhelp,
my wchsdata.htm file indicates a duplicate of almost every map ID!

I thought the duplicates were a result of my attempt to import a map
file. I deleted this map file, since it wasn't needed, but when I run
the Duplicate Map ID report, I still see duplicates:

Topic A - map ID 1

Topic A -map ID 1

My project contains the BSSCDefault.h map file. Isn't this synonymous
with the project mapfile?How can I remove these duplicate map IDs?
