Thanks so much! Saved book as a MIF as you recommended, deleted the condition

Thanks so much!

As far as I know, the only way to do it is to save the book file as a MIF, open
the MIF in a text editor, delete the condition, and then resave it as a BOOK
file. It's not as hard as it sounds. Here is an example of the lines you would
need to delete for the "Comment" condition:
> # end of Condition
