Rick,

Yves must have pulled that out of the archives. The date on my post asrecorded 
in the header info in their posted reply shows 2006! Thatwould make sense...

I did purchase FindChangeFormatsBatch from you back then, and I haveused it 
extensively in managing the evolution of our 36 condition tagsacross our 
library of several thousand pages. I like the way the script uses a 
user-configurable table in an FM file. I have set up several table files for 
various clean-up situations, and it's a real time-saver to know I can set it up 
once and use the various flavors I set up repeatedly, like pulling the 
appropriate settings just by opening the appropriate script settings file. And, 
I *really* love the fact that I can use the same script for similarly managing 
variables and tons of other formats. I set up file management books so that I 
can run the script once on an entire suite and remap conditions, variables, 
paragraph formats, character formats, etc., in one fell swoop. Definitely worth 
the investment. ;-)

The only thing I have to be very careful about is that for any condition tags 
that I tell the script to delete, the script automatically makes unconditional 
any text currently tagged with the condition that is marked as delete. Not sure 
how it handles the situation of overlapping tags...

So, I have to search through the book to find out whether it's in use and how 
before I can just delete it. In Rene's perfect world (which although it doesn't 
exist, would be a lovely ?albeit delusional? place to abide) I think I would 
have an extra column in the table to allow choice of whether to make any tagged 
text unconditional or to delete the tagged text.

Hello All,

Somehow I missed this thread. I can write a FrameScript script to do 
whatever you want to conditions. However, I think FindChangeFormatsBatch 
should delete the condition after it maps it. If you just want a 
straightforward "DeleteUnusedConditions" let me know and I will give you a 
price. Thanks.
