Adding cascading logic to your color coded document is entirely possible.

There are 6 'logic commands that you will need to know. The command is painted the same color as a color that preceded it in the color table. The reading 'flow' is 'If the color was (or was not) selected then Keep (or Delete) the text associated with the color of the argument that immediately follows.

COMMAND

DESCRIPTION

<IF/KEEP. . .>

If the command bears the same color as a preceding element that was chosen, then keep the text colored by the argument that follows.

<IFNOT/KEEP. . .>

If the command bears the same color as a preceding element that was NOT chosen, then keep the text colored by the argument that follows.

<IF/DELETE. . .>

If the command bears the same color as a preceding element that was chosen, then delete the text colored by the argument that follows.

<IFNOT/DELETE. . .>

If the command bears the same color as a preceding element that was NOTchosen, then keep this text colored by the argument that follows.

<IF/ASK. . .>


<IFNOT/ASK. . .>


(A sixth logic argument, one you have already learned, is the /NEGOPT.)

 

Example:

<C:radio>Type:Springing/Type:Immediate</C> (data gathering)

<C>Children/Manage Business</C> (data gathering)

<C>-IF/Ask-Minor children</C> (If there are 'Children (yellow) then ask f there are Minor Children

<C>-IFNOT/Delete-Minor children</C> (if there are not Children, then delete the question and the body text re: Minor Children

<C>-If/Ask-Transfer and Encumber Real Property</C> (if Manage Businesss selected, ask

<C>-If/Ask-Manage Partnerships/Manage LLC interests</C>

 

Notes:

The If/ Keep or If/Delete commands are stand alone commands. They can 'handle' only a single argument.

The If/Ask and IfNot/Ask command as can contain up to 6 colored arguments.

These are alternatives to the <<*Options* , , ,>> and nested and cascading <<*Options*. . .>> provided by Pathagoras. One is not 'better' than the other. Choose whichever works and feels best for you and your office.
