When you are recording topics, you may find that several tasks share common steps. Instead of recording separate topics, you can insert a Decision frame to allow your users to choose from two or more options. For example, from the Print dialog box in your application, you can print all pages in the document, the current page only, or a range of pages. For each task, you follow the same steps to open the Print dialog box and start the printing process. You could record the steps for printing all pages and then insert a Decision frame to record the other print options instead of creating individual Print topics. Decision frames provide a way to document multiple tasks rather than different methods of accomplishing the same task.
Note: Explanation, Decision, and No Context frames are informational and do not have Context IDs.
The recording process when inserting Decision Paths varies based on two factors:
When recording a Decision Path with sound in automatic mode, the first PrintScreen records the start screen and sound for the new Decision Path. Subsequent PrintScreen's continue to record both the action and the sound.
