The easiest way to globally make text tagged with the Inserted
condition unconditional is to delete the condition tag itself from
the Conditional Text dialog. When you do this for a tag that is
applied to text in the document, you get two options on how to
treat the tagged text:
delete it (appropriate for the Deleted condition)
make it unconditional (perfect for the Inserted condition)

This should work on anyting that is tagged with that condition,
whether body text, table text, table rows, or anchred frames.
