We discovered in RH Office X5 that there appears to be a
limit of 258 characters (including "AND" and "NOT" and underscores)
for a conditional build expression in a layout, which for a large
project with many conditional tags forced us to greatly shorten tag
names to 2 characters each and build a matrix to decipher
everything. Our client would like us to create additional build
expressions using additional tags, but we're just about "maxed" out
with RH X5.

I do question why you need to have so long expressions. Take a look

In additon to the thread Colum mentioned, you should also
know that RoboHelp 6 has a feature that can dramatically reduce a
need for build tags. This feature is called a Variable. So where
you may have in the past wanted to personalize output by using
Company1Company2Company3 and on and on and on, you now insert just
a single variable that can be changed at the time you compile or
