On top of this, the FDK doesn't expose anything to make this easy to program. If there's an easy FDK or FrameScript solution to removing a condition from text, please let me know!

I'm in FrameMaker 6.0, editing a book with about 12 separate files.
Throughout the files, I've tagged the latest revision text as
'Inserted', to highlight for the reviewers. All of the new revisions
have been accepted so I want to remove the 'Inserted' tag to all that
text, on a global basis, i.e., in all files of the book. Does anyone
know if I can do that on a global basis? Help seems to indicate you =


to do it case by case.

You can hide the indicators on a global basis, but you have to remove =
conditions on a file-by-file basis. A quicker way to do this is to open =
each file, delete the condition, and leave the text as unconditional. =
You lose the condition tag, but if you preserve it in a template file. =
you can always add it back in.
