In writing the user manual for a piece of software, I'm trying to communicate the relationship between a numerical control, which I'll call frob, and two properties, which I'll call foo and bar.
Currently I have something to the effect of:
When frob is set to zero, foo and bar are unaffected by step. As frob is increased, foo increases, and bar decreases; as frob is decreased, foo decreases and bar increases.
Is there a more concise and easier to parse way to communicate this relationship to a non-technical audience?
