    To be honest I haven't tried. Maybe it would work. If it doesn't, you could just use two redirects and apply the conditional tag to each topic.

    I think you maybe missing the point of conditional text. It is to EXCLUDE output from the finished product. Therefore a mapid in the application should not be able to find content that has been tagged as that content should not exist. From what you describe you want the application to be able to find both sets of output depending on the tag. This is just not possible.

    It sounds like you need two distinct help files in which case you will need a change to the application.

    Could you not have the content from those two topics in the redirect topic and tag the content there?

    This is why we ask people to always state the version of Rh being used. Version 9 allows iFrames to be inserted in topics. You could have two iFrames, one for each product and tag those. The company page would then show in the topic pane and be usable from there.

     

    See the RoboHelp Tour on my site and see the RoboHelp 9 content.

     

    Would that work for you?

     

    It is set up in the Employee Care topic. Generate the webhelp output for all locations and select UK in the dropdown. Car expenses shows how it works.
