Downloading the Custom Conditions Pack

If you did not receive an alert about the latest Custom Conditions Pack, you may have the automatic check turned off in your user preferences (the automatic check occurs once daily). You can change this setting via Tools --> User Preferences --> Updates:

You can also manually download the pack by selecting Tools --> Download Latest Custom Conditions Pack:

Once the Custom Conditions have been downloaded, don't forget to apply the desired actions to them.

What's Next?

It won't be long before we release another new pack of exciting conditions. If you have ideas for new conditions, please leave a comment about them. I'm sure everyone reading this can each think of a unique and helpful condition to create.
