Reference: Robust Optional Text

 

Creating Optional Text (Simple): Surround the text you want to be optional with curly braces.

    'Robust' Options and Optional text allow you to add more flexibility to document automation. Perhaps most useful are 'prompts' that you can add. With a simple options block, the program will highlight the text block, pause and ask "Do you want to keep the highlighted text?" With a prompt, you can present a more meaningful question to the end user.

 

This is a simple optional block:

 

{I appoint [Guardian] to be the guardian of any children who are still minors at the time of my death.}

 

Here is the same text, but in a 'robust' setup. The prompt appears between the second and third *s:

 

<<*Optional*Are there children*I appoint [Guardian] to be the guardian of any children who are still minors at the time of my death.>>

 

(Note: the 'painting' of the setup text above is for illustration and emphasis only. Colors are not required.)
