We are using FrameMaker 12 (unstructured) on a Windows 7 platform (64 bit).
I have the following anchored frame and paragraphs that together form a block of conditional text:
Small icon graphic in an anchored frame aligned to left margin.
Body Text paragraph (this text runs around the small icon graphic)
Body Text paragraph (this text is below the small icon graphic, aligned to the left margin)
1. List Num 1 paragraph (aligned against left margin)
2. List Num + paragraph (aligned against left margin)
3. List Num + paragraph (aligned against left margin)
I block everything described above, and apply a conditional tag.
When I hide the conditional text, 100% of the conditional text disappears, except:
The "1." and the anchor seem to be stuck to each other when I try to hide the conditional text. (They are separated by two paragraphs of Body Text prior to hiding the conditional text.)
Anyone have any ideas about what is going on?
Thanks in advance,
Make sure that you have your Text symbols showing and select the end of paragraph mark as part of the entire condition. You probbly missed this for the last ListNum item, so when you set it to hide it reverted to 1.
See this thread for a similar issue: Hiding conditionalized text causes preceding list to display additional list item
I always author with the text symbols showing, so that was not the issue.
However, today I made absolutely certain that the conditional tags started at the left margin, and ended after the end of the paragraph mark after the third numbered list paragraph, and it seems to be working.
I honestly thought I had done that before, but your comment made me go back and look again.
