I'm looking for a good tool to manage a multi-branch moderator's
guide for a usability study. There are a number of shared tasks but
some ordering variation, and I'm trying to avoid updating the same
task/probe multiple times. Any suggestions?

How many participants in the study?

I just go the old fashion way. I print out 1 copy per participant and
then reorganize the pages to control for presentation bias.

I dislike taking notes on a laptop when I do a utest... feels too
clinical.

20 participants in 4 groups. My problem is that, by and large, the
tasks for each group are the same, but their order varies by group.
For example, group 1 does task 1, task 2a, task 3, task 4; group 2
does task 2b, task 3, task 4, task 1; etc. There's no variation
amongst participants within the group.

What I'm wondering is whether there's an easy way to create a
shared task library that I can generate the scripts from. I don't
want multiple scripts that I have to manually make sure are in sync.
