Conditions are indicated in a project by markers called build tags that you can assign to anything from one letter in a word to a paragraph, a graphic, an entire topic, and more in order to extract specific categories later to create a particular output. Learn about how to create, assign, and use build tags.
- [Narrator] Conditional build tags are easy to create…and apply, as you'll see.…So let's take a look at the topic…that we're going to use to illustrate this,…it's called Condition Test Topic.…I've got three paragraphs,…but I want this middle paragraph…to be conditionalized so that I can show it or hide it…depending on the output that I want to generate.…So what I do is I click up on the menu on Edit,…click on Pods,…and I want the Conditional Build Tag pod,…so I'll select that.…
It's going to open up in the left-hand pane.…And I'll click the Create a conditional build tag icon.…When I get the New Conditional Build Tag dialog box…for the name I'll just call it Demo,…and I can control what color gets used for the little flag.…The default for the third one is blue,…but as you'll see if I click on it,…I have access to the complete palette.…So for now,…I'll just stick with blue.…Click on OK,…and here's my tag.…
