1. Before you make the PDF, at the book window select all the files, and then choose View > Show/Hide Indicators. Turn off the condition indicators there, and the conditioned text will have the same formatting as unconditional text (provided that you didn't apply the colors as character overrides).
2. View > Text Symbols. When you apply a condition tag to a bulleted item, if you don't include the paragraph end marker, the text will be hidden, but the bullet will still show.

I'm wondering if someone knows how to work around these? 1. First, I've marked the two versions of my manual with two different colors. This is quite handy when I'm working with my file before I've printed it. However, when I went to make the .PDF, I was surprised to find that it preserved these colors in the PDF! I didn't want it to do that - I want my conditional text to look like regular text. First Question: Is there any way I can specify that the colors are viewed on the screen only, and not in the final outputted document? 2. Second, I've specified a number of bulleted items as conditional text. FM had no problem making the text conditional, but it completely ignored the bullets themselves, and thus I have bullets hanging out on the page with no text after them. This looks pretty weird. Second question: Is there a way to specify to FM that the bullets have to be included with the conditional text?
