Conditional Build Expression
If you have conditional tags in the project, click Define to specify conditional build
expressions. See “Conditional build tag expressions” on page 232.
Apply To All Topics
Select this option to apply master pages or CSS at the project level:
The selected master page overrides the settings of all the individual topics with or without a master
page applied to them in the project. The CSS and layout of the master page override the CSS and appearance of all
the topics. If the selected master page does not have a header or footer, no topic displays a header or footer
irrespective of if it had one header or footer defined.
The master pages associated with individual topics become effective. The selected CSS overrides all the
topics and their CSS irrespective of whether they are associated with a master page or not.
See “Applying a master page or CSS at the time of generation” on page 118.

screens). You can also specify a GIF image. However, in the case of a GIF animation, only the first frame is used as
