How do I add an optional clause to a form?

Editable forms in Practical Guidance may have one or more nonstandard Optional clauses you can choose to add to the end of a section in a form. To add an Optional clause:

  1. On the right side of the form, at the end of the section to which you will add the clause, select Optional Clause. The Alternative Clause pop-up appears.
    Tip: You will see a separate icon for each available standard clause.
  2. What kind of alternate clause do you want to add?
    If you want...Then...
    A standard alternate clause

    Select the Add to Form button.

    The Alternative Clause pop-up disappears, and the selected clause appears at the end of the section.

    A custom alternate clause
    1. Select the Add Your Own Clause Text button. A custom clause dialog box replaces the Alternate Clause pop-up.
    2. In the Directly enter text, or copy and paste from another document box, enter the text of the clause you want to add.
    3. Select the Add Text button. The custom clause dialog box disappears. The clause you entered appears at the end of the section.
    Tip: If you change your mind about adding the clause, select Remove Clause to remove it from the form.
  3. Complete any other work you want to do in the form.
