In Robohelp X5, I made extensive use of the conditional text
option for the different "flavors" of our product, based on
different technologies used.
We have now upgraded to RoboHelp 7. Is there any way that I
can replace the existing conditional text with variables? I am sure
there must be a better way to do it than manually pasting the
variable over the existing text.
I dare say you could do this via a find and replace tool.
There is such a tool within RH but the one you'd need must be able
to search for instances in the HTML where the conditional text or
variable tag is split over several lines. The most frequently ones
mentioned on these forums that allow for this are
What you'd need to do is look for a pattern in your
conditional text tag, use the "start with", "end with" and
"contains" fields as appropriate to find the tag and replace with
the variable HTML. You will have to do a bit of testing first
before you apply the final changes so take backups at each step and
be prepared to revert back as required. Best of luck.
