Oh yeah. But as I say, many times I'm looking at
a page to review/revise where it fits into the
general scheme, so I'd want it turned on.


I'm not the most disciplined editor. I'll
have a certain reason in mind for going over
a selection of topics, but if I spot something
else that needs changing, or if something reminds
me of something else I should add/change, then
I'll probably do it on the spot.

Granted I could write myself a note, giving the
reason for the update, the location, the content...
but then, unless it'll be quite lengthy, I might
just as well do it while I'm there, before I get
back to the original editorial task.

I've thinned out many of the layered conditions,
but at the cost of introducing duplicate text in
a lot of places. But there are still some ugly
multi-condition left-overs. When I encounter them,
I need to do something about them, so the conditions
need to be visible to remind me to do that.


It'll all even out once I've gone entirely to a better
way of blocking out my use of conditions.

But now's a good time to hear from others who make
good use of more than one or two in a project.
