and how does one easily achieve this?

Variables work for text only. I do not see any easy way of using RoboHelp's variables to conditionally replace graphics. Unless, of course, I use two documents and use conditional tags when building. I do not want to maintain two documents.

FWIW, I am comparing RoboHelp's variable feature to that of Help & Manual.

Here is the deal:

I need to maintain just one set of documents.

This document set contains a bunch of graphics, each of which has two faces:
imagine the same product with two different covers.

I want tocreate a conditional build that will allow me dynamically select
which face of the graphic goes into my output.

RoboHelp's conditional text using variables works well for text. What about
graphics? Anyone done this?

Help & Manual seems to have a provision.
