Hi Ulrike,

You might consider using structured FrameMaker in conjunction with our
AXCM plugin. With that, you can conditionalize whole chapters and much
more. I do it regularly. I agree with the sentiment that multiple books
is cumbersome and error prone. 

AXCM is completely free... you can

Hi Framers,
I have a book file with a number of chapters and appendices. I use the
same book file for 3 manuals, which I control with 3 conditional text
One of the appendices is only used in 2 of the manuals. Can I make this
appendix conditional?
My fallback solution is to make a separate book for this manual. I'd
prefer though to have a single book.

Thanks for your time,
