Default Merge Conditional Extra Lines


Having a bit of a hart time with an extra line. Trying to only include a paragraph for live people, eliminating the line when someone has passed away. Cannot for the sake of me figure out the /f/ and /b/ inserts.

Blah blah blahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblah blah blahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblah blahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblah blahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahblah.

{ IF { MERGEFIELD f3 } = "Y" "" "dilly dilly Dilld dilly dilly dilly Dilld dilly dilly dilly Dilld dilly dilly dilly Dilld dilly dilly dilly Dilld dilly dilly dilly Dilld dilly dilly dilly Dilld dilly dilly dilly Dilld dilly.

Sigh boom babbedah hiv;dpfkv n;dfpokjn pikjn.

Thanks!

If you're using an IF test, you wouldn't also be using the \b or \f switches.
{IF{MERGEFIELD Alive}= "Y" "Text for the living¶
"}
