You don't need to import condition settings to show the "paper" condition throughout the book. In the book window, select all files. Then select View > Show/Hide Conditional Text and make the settings you want in the dialog box. That said, what's annoying about having condition tags in chapters that don't need them? It's not like they're constantly getting in the way. :-) Richard G.
