I'd like to delete and rename a conditional tag simultaneously.
An FM file contains two condition tags: Pro (for experts) and Light (for beginners).
Now, the beginners have turned into experts, and I don't need the tag Light anymore.
The information (formerly tagged Light) should now be tagged Pro, too.
Is there an easy way to turn any Light tag into a Pro tag?
Did I miss something in the Show/Hide Conditional Text pod or the Conditional Tags pod?
Is there an easy alternative without converting to/working with a MIF file (and maybe damaging it)?

Many thanks for the hints.
Copy Special. Nice function. I never used it. Now I will do.
And the script Super Find Change works too.
It's a feature that is often overlooked by my students, but it greatly extends By Pasting in the Find/Change dialog box—one of my favorite document "fixers".
Or you try the free ExtendScript "Super Find Change", which does exactly what you want: Find and replace text with a certain conditional tag and delete the tag after replacing:
Warning: It's an example ExtendScript that is intended to show what you can do with ExtendScript. So, make a backup copy of your files first 😉
You can download it here: FrameMaker Super Find / Change Reloaded – Adobe Technical Communication Blog
For FrameMaker 14 just unzip it to FrameMaker's "Startup" folder in your user profile:
If the folder "Startup" is not there yet, just create it.
After a FrameMaker restart, you can find it in > File > Utilities > Super Find Change
