Does the SMRT 4.10 version allow to create blocks of scenarios?

Hello, we have the SMRT 4.10 version. Does this version allow to create blocks of scenarios? We have 6 attributes (1x4 levels and 5x2 levels), to interview 400 persons. We want to present 12 choice tasks (with two scenarios each), per person. We wanted to have 24 choice tasks in two blocks.
Thank you.

SMRT does not support this feature, as it does not have the ability to skip to a different section of the questionnaire.

One workaround would be to have two separate SMRT projects, each one with a different version of the design.  However, blocks are possible using Lighthouse Studio, our current interviewing platform.

As an aside, I would also recommend updating to SMRT v4.23, which is the final version of SMRT.  It has multiple fixes and improvements over v4.10.  The download link and information about what changes have been made is available at http://www.sawtoothsoftware.com/support/downloads/94-support/software-downloads/870-download-smrt.

Thank you for your answer, we will consider updating.
In the paper and pencil interview type, the software allows introducing versions.  Is it a block a synonym of a version in this case?
Thank you
