Multiple Dependency Adjust Functions

Broad operator function selections are tied to system operation capabilities to provide operators of varying skill levels a comfortable degree of control over an automatic word processing system.

The relationship of Adjust Format, Auto Carrier Return (CR), and Paginate Adjust operator selectable functions to Auto Carrier Return, Auto Adjust, Line Adjust, and Paginate Adjust automatic system capabilities are set out below: System Operation Capabilities

Operator Auto Auto Line Paginate

Selections CR Adjust Adjust Adjust Operation Performed?

Adjust No No No No Format

Choice = No

Adjust Auto Auto Yes Paginate Format CR CR Adjust Choice = Yes

Auto CR Adjust Adjust N/A N/A Choice = Yes

Auto CR No No N/A N/A Choice = No

Paginate N/A N/A N/A Adjust Adjust Format

Choice = Yes

Paginate N/A N/A N/A No Adjust

Choice = No.

From the above, the system operations performed extend not only across several system capabilities, but also beyond the operator selections. For example, a positive Adjust Format selection will result in Auto Carrier Return under Auto Carrier Return and Auto Adjust, and a Line Adjust operation will be performed. A negative selection will render a manual system out of an automatic system.
