Viewing Used Conditions

You can view a list of all condition tags that have been applied in files throughout your project. The list shows not only the condition tags, but each file where they have been used. You can also quickly rename or remove multiple condition tag occurrences in a single batch.

For more information about condition tags and how they are used in projects, see Conditions.

    • Condition Tag Displays the name of the condition tag set and the tag within it. The condition tag set is listed first, followed by a period and then the name of the condition tag (e.g., Primary.Print).
    • File Displays the name of the file.
    • Title Displays the properties title of the file (if any).
    • Folder Displays the folder where the file is found.
