To answer this question I would definitely need a context.
This sentence is taken from a technical manual that is meant to serve as a reference for two different products. The author used this sentence simply to inform the reader that sometimes, although a set of instructions will apply to both products, only one will be specifically mentioned.

...does that make sense or am I still being too vague?

I guess I could just cut-and-paste a portion of the text into a post but I don't know if that would help or just put you to sleep. Emotion: smile

"Software Release 2.5 supports both the X Series product and the Y Series product. Dependent on the task described, you may see references only to the X Series product"

Depending is more appropriate, stevieEmotion: smile because it is a present participle used in a phrase to modify the main clause ' you ' .

The same goes with ' dependent ' but it gives a sense of a state and not so much on the reason why you see references .....
Still to vague.
Thanks! Emotion: smile

...any advice on the placement of the word "only" in the sentence?

still vague.
' either ' seems fit to substitute ' only ' in the ' dependent .... ' sentence.
