You can insert 'prompts' at any location in your document to direct, instruct, remind, etc. the end user to perform a certain task. The prompt (currently) will display at the conclusion of any document assembly process.

Structure: <<*Prompt*Do this action. . .>>

You can create up to 5 prompts, numbered <<*Prompt1*>>, <<*Prompt2*>>, etc. (If you need just a single prompt, you can just call it <<*Prompt*>>.)

If more than one <<*Prompt#* . . . >> block is present, a floating menu bar is added to the screen that allows you to proceed to the 'Next' block when the previously assigned task is completed. Pathagoras will search for such prompts in numeric order, not by position in the document.

The default action when Pathagoras encounters a prompt command is to add a highlighted series of angle brackets ">>>" pointing to the location where the task is to be performed. (If you have numbered prompts, the highlighted text will display the 'step': ">1>".

The prompt text will be provided in a message box. The instruction can be anything (such as call in a file from a DropDown List, or provide an answer that otherwise could not have been included in an "<<*Options* . . . >>" block.

If numbered prompts are present, a small 'Next' floating toolbar will be presented to allow the user to go to the 'next' item in the sequence.

Adding the argument '(message)' simply displays a small screen with the designated message. After 5 seconds (if the user has not already dismissed it) the message will disappear.

Examples:

<<*Prompt1*Insert selection from DropDown List titled 'Signature blocks'>>

<<*Prompt2*Insert selection from DropDown List titled 'Signature blocks'>>

<<*Prompt(message)*Don't forget to send a carbon copy to the client.)>>
