Emptying a Block
The Empty Block Start and Empty Block End commands, available from the Insert menu, allow the user to have SOAPware leave out a section of the report when printing if that section doesn’t contain any information. To use this command, "wrap" the commands around the section to ignore when empty.
Example: To do this in the Document Designer, the user would select Empty Block Start from the Insert menu. Then, press Enter to go to the next line. Type "MEDICATION", followed by a colon. Bold the word "medication". Press enter, and select Data Items, SOAPnote, and Medications. Then, press Enter, and select Empty Block End from the Insert menu.
The end result will look like this:
#$EncounterField Medications ,,$#

Inserting a Signature
To embed a signature, scan the signature to a file on the computer and then follow the same instructions as for inserting an image (above).
The Ask User commands allows the user to add unique, auto-populating commands, that are not available in the Data Items menu. This command inserts a custom question that can be used to insert additional information before printing the design. Click Data Items in the menu bar; Click Misc. Data Items, and then Click the Ask User menu item.
