Hi. FM 8.0p273 Windows XP (running on parallels on a Mac) I am fast approaching the end of my tether working with conditional text. FM won't let me make some segments of text unconditional. In fact, when I try to remove the conditional tag, the text turns bright green with a strikethrough effect. What's more... when I try again, it's now bright red with a strikethrough effect. And, (hullo, what's this?) now it's bright red with a strikethrough effect and a change bar. All three conditions in the document are set to Style: As Is, and three different colors (green, olive, and magenta). I cannot make this text unconditional. Selecting (or deselecting) Special > Conditional Text > Show Conditional Text at the document level or the book level affects all of the conditionally tagged paragraphs except for these red, struck through, paragraphs. What's going on? Is it FM telling me that I'm doing something very wrong? I've looked at the FM documentation, and it's giving me nothing. Does anyone have any idea what might be happening here? Update: I also cannot copy and paste any of the affected text. If I select it, ctrl+c and then ctrl+v somewhere else, it won't paste. Although I can Edit > Undo Paste. Go figure. Is it possible that these segments of text have, through some action or combination of actions, become hopelessly corrupted? Is that even possible? Thanks, Jona Steenbrink
