Condition Tags on Table cells cause the condition checker pattern to be created on the pdf output

I have defined many conditional tags on table title cells. I wasn't checking my pdf outputs because I'm still continuing on my documentation process but I recently had to print out one of the tables for some datasheet verification job. I did realize that table cells containing conditional tags are being converted to pdf with the visual checker patterns which do represent these tags.

 

Is this some setting that I'm skipping at the PDF creation or is the practice of conditional tags in table cells something that I have to steer away from?

When you want to hide this condition indicator, go to the Show/Hide Conditional Text panel and deactivate Show Condition Indicators.

You cannot show this indicator for text, but not for tables or vice versa.
