The problem:

Map parts are static right?
So lets say  i have created a map part.
Now i ́d like to use it in 10 different positions per map, in 20 different maps.

No problem so far.
But now i ́d like to add topics to the map-part-structure AND i ́d like it to automatically update every place, the map-part is used.

Does anybody know how to achive that?

Thx :)

Map Parts can also be dynamic having macro code associated with them. This enables them to respond to the map where they are inserted, and be refreshed. The Files & Folders map parts are examples of these "Smart Map Parts". Creating Smart Map Parts requires programming knowledge and knowledge of the system registry.

Tried right now.
Gives back error messages. But i think this is because of m old and soon replaced System. Will check back with new PC on Win10 and Ver:2020.

But sounds like a possible solution.

Thx again. :)
