Thank you all very much for your great suggestions! I think that the notes in Masters page idea is great, as well as the conditional text.
I really appreciate your help. Best regards Jennifer K.

As suggested by other already, conditional text is the most obvious approach. But depending on how you intend to use the non-visible information in your process, another alternative might be a custom marker type, since you can easily collect these as a generated list. The downsides of this approach include these: - the marker dialog is one of the most annoying parts of the FrameMaker user interface from a usability standpoint (although the various indexing add-ons like IXgen provide highly usable alternative interfaces for markers, including the ability to display the marker contents in-line with regular text) - limited character formatting capabilities - limit of 255 characters per marker And if you're working in structured mode, I'm sure that there are a number of additional alternative approaches. My opinions only; I don't speak for Intel.

Hello all, I'M wondering if there is a way to hide text inside a Framemaker file (I have 7.1). I want to put some notes (hidden) into a particular part of one chapter for bug info. Does anyone know if FrameMaker supports this? Many thanks! Best regards Jennifer K. Blom _______________________________________________
