    instead of using a large checkgroup, you can use a table instead like this ( see also the assessment template )

    group-box 75x56 "" data [

    slabel "The patient presents for" return

    table 70x40 "Presents with" options [ multi "reason" left .99 ] data [
    "evaluation of "
    "management of"
    "review of radiographic data ordered at the previous visit." ]

    This is a multi-select table, use the control key to help select more than one item.

    this is good!

    What is the: " left .99 " command ?
  4. Graham

    Graham Developer Staff Member

    It means to align the columns on the left and to use 99% of the space availale.

    Still getting a comma @ the end.

    Let's see the generated text, and also the same text once you've saved the document.

    On saving, a punctuation routine kicks in cleaning up extra punctuation marks. It may be missing something....

    The point of using a table is that you can scroll thru the list conserving vertical space.

    It doesn't make that much sense making your table as high as all your data ...

    I've achieved bedoin status!

    so would an sedit list be the best way to go?

  11. Graham

    Graham Developer Staff Member

    I don't understand these two statments.

    1) Bedouins "migrate" in the desert (I think).

    2) an edit list as opposed to the check box or table.

  13. Graham

    Graham Developer Staff Member

    the difference is that an edit list only allows one choice. the table and check box can be mutiple choices.
  14. vtpaindoc

    vtpaindoc New Member

    Yes, I understand that. How would you suggest I approach making a template including all the above info/possibilities. I have already broken up one of my larger check group-dominated templates but am still having issues..

    1) making them fit on the m-series TPCs with 1024x768 res (even with the appropriate beta).

    2) I believe the commas still exist in the generated text.

    I realize these are distinctly unrelated issues.

    Do you use the TPC in portrait (taller than wider) or landscape (wider than taller) ?

    I love my Toshiba M200's HiRes screen [:)]
  16. vtpaindoc

    vtpaindoc New Member

    I prefer landscape.

    I have 3 TPCs. 2 of the older M-series motions (1024x768) and a newer, high res LE-series. The LE has no probs with the templates.

    If you create a template that is higher than your tablet's screen resolution, well, there is not a lot that Synapse can do.

    You could break your template into two parts.

    eg. call them .... visit-reason-1, and visit-reason-2

    then create two text macros, *visit-reason-1* and *visit-reason-2* and define them as $visit-reason-1 and $visit-reason-2

    You then create a new macro call visit reason, and it has


    so this will then bring up the gui templates as choices when doing the replacement.
