Après que + le futur antérieur or après que + l'indicatif
How does one differentiate when to use each structure? I have reread each lesson and the thoughts are unclear.
Merci en avance.
This question relates to:French lesson "Quand, lorsque, après que, une fois que + Le Futur Antérieur = 'when, after I've done in the future"

Sorry about the delay in answering your question.
Le Futur antérieur is an indicative tense.
In those examples you have to use it as you are talking about two actions in the future .
After/once you have done this, you will do that.
One action precedes the other and takes the 'futur antérieur'.
In French ( unlike English) words like 'quand', 'lorsque' are followed by a future tense.
Hope this helps!
