Here's my suggestion: Create a document for each display you need. In that documents, redefine the conditions so that all are black (not As Is) and the one has a color. Then Import Condition Settings from one of those docs to your doc. Pat Christenson -Original Message- From: Framers

Have you thought of displaying these and other useful reminders, hints, keys, legends, indicators, etc., in header/footer or other non-main-content areas on master pages? You can contain them in anchored frames whose parent paragraph was conditionalized so that a single show/hide command would be

To open a MIF file in FM​ as plain text, press and hold Shift (or Ctrl) when choosing Open, then choose Text in the dialog box that appears. (Working from long-unused human memory experience.) See: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/FrameMaker/8.0/help.html?content=Chap2-FrameMaker-Basics_099.html

Are you able to open the MIF file *before* you make your deletions? If so, I'd have to guess that something is happening in the MIF editing that is not kosher and is, in fact, corrupting the file. Have you tried using any other text editor besides Notepad? It would be good to eliminate that
