Problem Description

When I save a V8 file to V7 file using Level Mapping in the Save As V7 options, some of the levels are not being remapped to the resultant V7 file.

Steps to Resolve

In the V8 file open the Level Manager dialog and right click on one of the column headings such as ' Name ' then check the option to display the ' Number ' column if not already visible.

If there is no ' Number ' assigned against a level that does not get remapped, add one before saving to V7 format.

It is also possible to use the capability switch below to automatically generate level numbers.
