Re: Deleting (REALLY deleting) conditional text

A couple people have helpfully suggested manually deleting the conditional
text tag (Special > Conditional Text, select the tag, click Edit Condition
Tag, click Delete).

However, I've got 35 files in my book and 6 conditional tags. The process in
question is used 4 times (4 sets of output files) every time the files are
updated. For each set of output files, I have to delete 2 to 4 condition

35 x 6 x 3 (on average) = 630 operations every time I have to generate the 4
sets of output files. As you can see, I'd greatly prefer something that
operates on the entire book at once.
