Find conditional text

Unread post by Christian Kessner » Tue Mar 17, 2020 9:37 am

We have a manual with a number of conditional builds, where we change or remove some parts of some chapters, depending on the builds.
Now we face the problem to add another build, and we didn't find a way to find where we customized parts of certain topics.
So we basically have to go through all topics manually and look for custom parts.
Is there a way (except searching on file level in the topic xml files) to search for custom parts in topics?

Hi Christian,

You can search for conditional tags with the normal search function. Press CTRL+F to open search and set Find In: to "All Topics" and Find Where: to "Conditional Texts". 8)
