Can we also have the option of IF statements in formulas to support Smart Fills. For instance the scenario to apply markers/flags based upon a conditional criteria from Smart Fills or the IF statement is in the formula the ability to change the appearance of topic based upon a topic property value

I assume you're talking about MM14, in which case I strongly support your request for conditional formatting of a topic or the application of markers or flags based on whether the cell contents of a topic or its properties met certain criteria.

Mindjet purchased the great Power Markers MM add-in which did just that - for example you could set it up to change the topic colour depending on whether a task name contained certain words or would fall due in one, two or seven days - plus of course whether it was overdue. Unfortunately after purchasing Power Markers they dumbed it down and replaced the conditional formatting facility with the current smart fills feature, which has only a fraction of the features that Power Markers originally had.
