Join Mike Rankin for an in-depth discussion in this video Using conditional text, part of InDesign: Creating Long Documents (2012).
Conditional text is a feature that allows you to make customized additions of a…document by tagging text and then anchor graphics with conditions.…Then you can show or hide conditions before you output to create the custom…versions of your documents.…For example, you could keep both a student and a teacher's edition of a…textbook in a single file.…Let's see how it works.…You can find the Conditional Text panel under Window > Type & Tables >…Conditional Text, and that opens this panel here.…When you start out, the only condition in it is the default, Unconditional, which…means that no condition has been applied.…
All the text in this document right now is unconditional.…You can use the panel menu to load conditions from other documents, or you…can create them from scratch by clicking on the New Condition button at the…bottom of the panel.…Hold down the Command or Ctrl key when you click to get a dialog box where you…can name the condition and set up the appearance of the Condition Indicator,…
