(I use RH8 to build CHMs and PDFs under WinXP SP3, no network drive)
In a project I have some dropdowns intended for online use ("Click here to see ...") which should be omitted from the printed version. So I marked the entire paragraph with a suitable Conditional Build Tag (e.g. Online). In RH7 this gave the effect I wanted; the entire paragraph and its dropdown were absent from the PDF, which was generated with Conditional Build "NOT Online" and Advanced "Include drop-down text".
With RH8 the behaviour has changed; the calling paragraph is successfully suppressed but the drop-down is always printed.
Fortunately the workaround is not too difficult; open the dropdown, select its entire contents and mark that with the appropriate condition.
Does anyone know another workaround, or an easy way to find conditional dropdowns?
I have just reproduced the problem and regard it as a bug.
