I just thought of another.
4. I would like to be able to do a mass change on all text of a certain condition. For example, I would like to be able to turn all text that is conditionally labled "Changed" to unconditional. This would be useful when a revision has been reviewed and all text changes approved.

Go to Special > Manage conditional text, select a tag and click on [Edit] to set colours and appearance.<br /><br />Keeps my reviewers happy <g><br /><br />It would be great, though, to have [rant]Adobe product A so integrated with Adobe product B[/rant] that a .pdf gained a list of conditions; nice idea, Cheryl!
4. You can already use the Find/Change facility to replace one condition with another (or to remove conditions either all at once or instance-by-instance). First copy the new condition (or the new "uncondition") to the clipboard and then search for conditional text and change by pasting.
When I put my cursor at the end of the sentence of conditional text and hit a <enter>, the paragraph tag turns unconditional. It would be great to have the feature returned to the R7.x ability to keep a section conditional when editing.
Being able to search for conditions is useful, but would be that bit more comfortable with better feedback:
a) condition identifier displayed in the Find/Replace dialogue after you've selected it from the pull-down
b) condition on found text displayed in the status bar, without having to click in the found text and lose the selection
