Code Type:   Boolean Comparison
Code Scope of Action:   item

^exists( object )^

If the item exists for current note, this condition inside a in ^if(condition)^ block statement is true, where object is parent, child, childLinks, basicLinks, inboundLinks, lastChild, next, previous, nextSibling, and prevSibling.

^exists( attribute )^

This condition is true if the attribute (represented here by attribute) exists for the note, and if it is:

... and it is always true if the attribute is a date.

But ^if(^exists(text))^ cannot be used to check if the note has some text content as text is not an attribute. Use ^if(text(this))^ instead.
