Skipping past a blank page

I have a page of questions (q13, q 14, q15, q16, blank)that may all be skipped depending upon the response from a much earlier question (q1). If I set up pre-skips, I need to have a blank text question at the end for the last ones to skip to. But I can't remember how to skip past the blank question and on to the next page if all the other questions on the page are skipped. Here's the skip logic I have now:

pre-skip from q13 to q15 if q1 < 4 or q1 > 5
pre-skip from q15 to blank if q1 <> 5

I tried always post-skipping from q16 to q17 (on the next page), and that didn't work. I can't set it up as a pre-skip or it will always skip the whole page. I know it's a simple enough fix - I just can't seem to get there.


Nevermind. I think I figured it out by using:

pre-skip from q13 to q17 if q1 < 4 or q1 > 5
pre-skip from q15 to blank if q1<> 5

All you need to do is add in one additional pre-skip that skips from Q13 to the first question on the next page (assume it is Q17). The logic needs to satisfy where none of Q13-Q16 are to be asked. That will work. I use it often.
