You may need to produce a version of a document that has some differences to the original, yet is mostly the same. Rather than maintain two or more files, you can use 'conditional' markup in the one file, and publish whichever one you need.
When could you use conditional formatting?
- When publishing a teacher and student edition of a publication, you would want the answers to the questions to appear only in the teacher edition.
- When writing marketing or technical documents in a combined US English and UK English document.
- When developing software documentation for an application that runs on Windows and macOS and you would like to publish unique editions for each operating system.
- When working on catalogues or product factsheets that you must produce with prices in either Euros, US Dollars, or Australian Dollars.
- Or when creating a Limited Edition and a Full Edition of a publication, where the Limited Edition excludes all graphics.
These are just some examples of where conditions could become useful and allow you to use a single content file to produce different editions of a publication.
NOTE Conditions are only available in Typefi Writer when they have been added to the Apply condition action in a Typefi workflow. Any content marked up with a condition sits between condition markers and is highlighted in a condition-specific colour. These colours are also defined as part of the Apply condition action in Typefi Server.
