Conditional graphics?

I have a user guide with a cover page that needs one graphic for one product version and a different graphic for another version. How can I do this? I keep getting a message in FrameMaker that only text etc. can be conditional when I try to set my anchored frame conditional.

 

Using the latest version of FrameMaker.

 

Thanks!

Select the anchored frame anchor as text, then you can conditionalize it. Don't select it as an object by clicking on the frame.

What exact version of FM are you running? I've not heard of any issues in conditioning anchored frames.

Just tested in FM2019 patch 5 (15.0.5.838) - works fine when you select the anchor (make sure you have Text Symbols on - makes it much easier to see & select the anchor).
