Chapter 3. Text > Conditional Text

Conditional Text

If you publish multiple versions of a document—multiple languages, or any other time the text of the document changes from version to version—you should look at InDesign’s conditional text feature.

Ole, for example, publishes a number of documents related to InDesign scripting. Most of the body copy is the same from version to version, but the script examples vary from AppleScript to JavaScript to VBScript. To keep from having to maintain the different versions as separate documents, Ole uses conditional text.

Conditional text has two components: the conditions themselves, and the text you’ve marked using the conditions. You work with conditional text using the Conditional Text panel (see Figure 3-71). To display the panel, choose Conditional Text from the Text and Type submenu of the Window menu.
