The company where I work has a number of different products based on the same basic platform with radically different configurations. However, because enough of the basic platform is shared, I need to maintain one documentation set Keeping the product differences in appendices won't work, as the differences are too embedded in the product. As a result, I have 35 conditionals (don't ask!) sprinkled liberally throughout the majority of my files.
With the recent additional of new conditionals, I have noticed a phenomenon where I add some new text in a sentence and make it conditional, but suddenly other hidden conditionals start displaying as well. To hide them, I have to keep selecting them and clicking "Apply," or I have to select "Show All, and then "Show" to display only the specified conditionals. Is this a bug? Does FrameMaker only handle a certain number of conditionals gracefully? Is there something else I should know?
