Following Martha's advise I am splitting up a question Compound sentences, the punctuation and mooore.
- When I describe consequences of some actions one can take, what form of the verb "will" should I use?
- If both are generally allowed, how do they change the meaning?
Consider the following sentence:
Changes [will/would] not be reflected in the tree structure until the node is manually toggled.
To understand the context, suppose one have performed actions that indirectly affect a tree structure. In an amicable way, these changes should be reflected in the structure. But they would not for some reason, and one must take an additional action for them to appear.
The problem is that I don't know whether these action have been taken by anyone or whether anyone will ever perform them. It's just about that such actions exist.
