In Framemaker 2020 (16.0.2.916), when I generate an HTML help CHM file and have a Map file (.h) in the book directory, the .h file is generated and it pulls the Map numbers from the file correctly, but the file name is set to the repeated book name (bookbook.h) instead of  (book.h). If I don't have a map file in the directory, it creates the .h file with the correct name, but, of course, without the correct Map numbers from the now missing .h file. The same source files work fine in FM 2017 and in FM 2019, but not in FM 2020. I can't find any references to this in the forums. Anyone have any ideas how to fix this?

Does it make any difference if you create HTML5 output?

It doesn't make a difference. I get the file name problem with both outputs.

Ok, just wanted to confirm - if you're totally up to date (not sure what the release level is at the moment), then you should file a bug in the Tracker (https://tracker.adobe.com/).

I think I am up to date. At least it says I am when I check for updates. Thanks.

Filed a bug (https://tracker.adobe.com/#/view/FRMAKER-10551). There are a few others in there that broke FM 2019 functionality as well. Might have to stick with 2019 for a while.

As a workaround, if you just rename it in the output does that fix it?

No, unfortuneately it doesn't. The .h file is used to insert the ID markers (numbers) at the locations in the HTML indicated by the CSH markers in the FM source as the HTML files are generated and the CHM is compiled. When the .h file doesn't match the book file name, the compile process ignores it and inserts the default IDs in the HTML so the CHM file has the wrong IDs. The .h file is not used in the HTML help after compile and doesn't ship with the CHM file.
