It's "defunct" to me.

We switched to Flare 1-dot-something years ago, when the RH owners were being deliberately obtuse and obscure about their intentions for the product, and haven't looked back. Thus I know and can talk about RH behavio[u]r only from the last version that I used.

Hi Kevin

I just wanted to clarify that things still work this way with RoboHelp as it exists today.

The comment

(as in RoboHelp from several years ago...)

Seems to infer that either things no longer work this way in RoboHelp or that RoboHelp is a defunct product. And neither are true. ;)

Cheers... Rick :)

Suzette Leeming inquired:


Just curious... can you only use "not" conditions? Why can't you use
something like "if Prod1", "if Prod2", etc. Then it would be
easy to add a
"if Prod3".

I know the software I use has both inclusive and exclusive
conditions, so
that's why I'm thinking this way.

In MadCap Flare (as in RoboHelp from several years ago...) all content is included in published output unless it carries a condition that has been marked as excluded.

But... the "notProd1", " notProd2" was just a naming convention; they can be called whatever you like. It just seemed clearer to call them "notProd1" or "excludeProd1" given how Flare's conditions work. If anyone ever has to pick up my pieces, that would be one less thing to puzzle about. :-)
