Not quite, but close enough. 

What you need to do is set the desired conditions in one file, 
then import those conditional text settings into all the other files. 

Leave the first file open after you set it up properly, then highlight
all the component files (except the one you have set) in the book 
window. Then invoke File>Import>Formats, select the set-up file 
in the Import From box, and deselect all format properties except 
Conditional Text Settings, then one more button click is all you 
need. BTW, this procedure has been in place since version 6.0.

My opinions only; I don't speak for Intel.

Subject: Using Conditional Text in Books

Is there a way to change the conditional text settings for all of the
chapters in book at one time, rather than having to go in and reset each
chapter file individually? 

I have three books that I have set up to share several chapter files,
but having to go in and change the conditional text settings for each
chapter at a time seems rather cumbersome. 

I'm using Frame 7.1. Any suggestions would be most welcome!
