Understanding Advanced Conditional Expressions

Hi,

I am trying to get my head around working with Advanced conditions.

I had thought that I can include the same condition in some places and exclude it elsewhere (when it's used with something else), but I cannot get it to work.

For example, I have:

PDF
Product A
Product B

I want to create a PDF Guide for Product A, but some text in the topic is conditioned for PDF and Product B. I had hoped to use something like this:

PDF or Product A and not (PDF and Product B)

But that does not work. The PDF information I want to hide still shows.

Is this because there is conflicting instructions regarding the PDF condition? "Show" and "not show" and "show" is stronger?

Is there any way to accomplish what I want? I really do want to split the project in two.

My actual case is a somewhat more complicated, I have simplified the problem a bit.

Thank you!
Ashman

I might have misunderstood; but wouldn't the 'PDF' condition only be used in the condition expressions for targets which are not PDFs, where you want to exclude the PDF content?

In your example, Product A's PDF target would just use this condition expression:
not (ProductB)
