When you insert a Decision frame, it is placed after the currently selected frame in the Topic Editor. The existing path becomes the first path on the Decision frame, so you will be asked to provide a name for the path. Decision frames are represented in the Frame Structure as a dark blue circle with the letter D. A Decision frame utilizes the screenshot from the following frame and lists the available paths as hyperlinks.
From a Decision frame, you can create an Alternative Path, which rejoins the existing path, or you can create a Branch Path, which has a different ending point. For example, you could create Alternative Paths for printing the current page and a range of pages. You could create a Branch Path for setting print options, which requires that the Print dialog box be open, but does not result in anything being printed.
Note: Explanation, Decision, and No Context frames are informational and do not have Context IDs.
