Default Injury Tolerance's x(#buildit)

I've been getting back to playing with the templates in DF5 and have run into a problem.

Injury Tolerance includes an x(#buildit) tag. I'm using #replacetages to insert initmods for the modifiers, but the #buildit is still opening a window to allow the user to select modifiers. Is there a way to remove or override the x(#buildit)?

Code:
#Replacetags in "AD:Injury Tolerance" with "x()"
That should clear out the x() tag, and the #buildit command that's in there. Note, of course, that you should probably

Code:
#Clone "AD:Injury Tolerance" as "AD:Injury Tolerance (Foo)"
#Replacetags in "AD:Injury Tolerance (Foo)" with "x()"

Thanks, for all the various trys I've made replacing the x with a blank didn't even occur to me. Thanks.

And, yes, I'm working with a clone.

Got any tricks for modifiers on modifiers? I'm thinking about just adding a special-case modifier with the adjustments built into it. Take a look at either of DF5's Insect Swarm to get an idea of the current problem.

Currently Modifiers to Modifiers can't be done automatically. How I'd do it is to clone Injury Tolerance into the two different sub-advantages, then apply modifiers normally. e.g. something like:

Code:
#Clone "AD:Injury Tolerance" as "AD:Injury Tolerance (Foo; Diffuse)"
#ReplaceTags in "AD:Injury Tolerance (Foo; Diffuse)" with "cost(100), displaycost(180), initmods(Swarm, +80%), x()"
#Clone "AD:Injury Tolerance" as "AD:Injury Tolerance (Foo; Damage Reduction 2)"
Etc...

Exactly the solution I've been working on and am testing now. I'll just stop posting here and get back to work.

Thanks for the help.
