Show/Hide Dimensions for Side-By-Side Matrix Question - How to?

Side-By-Side Matrix question allows you to collect data in matrix question format for more than 1 dimension. With the show/hide dimension logic, you can show or hide any of these dimensions based on logic. For example - You are collecting data on buyers behavior when buying a car for manufacturers: Audi, BMW, and Mercedes on the following dimensions: Performance, Safety, and Design. Now, if you want to hide the design dimension if, for an earlier question, respondents select that design is their least important criteria for car selection, you can do so using show/hide dimension logic.
