Reply to: Correct Behaviour of Output with Conditional Attributes

“I assume this is because you don't have either audience=”user” or audience=”administrator” selected?
If you don't have either of those selected then that is the reason (and the software is working as designed).”

Thanks again.
Fair enough, if that's how it's supposed to be, but I don't see how you are supposed to work that out from that line I quoted from the help, which says to me “If anything matches, the content is displayed.”

Also, having fiddled about with conditional text a bit more, I have found that I have to close XMetal and delete ct_preferences every time I change the conditional output settings, otherwise the output will be messed up in some way – either outputs the same as the last build or only shows content with no conditional settings.
