Create conditional test in master pages

May 22, 2013 9:45 AM

Tags: #master_page #conditional_text



I'm using conditional test in my document (in Body Pages) and I know how use it.

Now, I'd like to insert a bar on the left of document with a text visible only in a particular condition, so I added a frame in the master page with the text and I tried to apply the condition. It's how the condition can't be applied to the text.


I'm using Framemaker 10. It's possible to apply conditional text in the Master page? If no, there is a way to show different text in different situations? I can't copy and paste the frame in Body pages because I have many pages in the document and the number of pages change a lot in different situations.


Thank you in advance for your answers.


Best regards,

    Conditions can be applied to normal (Catalog) paragraphs in Background text frame on Master Pages.


    Conditions can't be applied to Graphics Text anywhere.


    Text in visible Flow text frames (e.g. Flow A) on MPs isn't visible on Body pages in any case.
