Alerts after 1Nt Forcing

I often get the question, if after a forcing notrump (1NtF) does the bid of a minor require an Alert or Announcement ... the answer is no. The ACBL Alert Chart is very clear that Two-of-a-minor after a forcing or semi-forcing 1NT response is not alertable. Once the forcing notrump has been announced system responses may require the rebid of minor without the values or shape to make other bids.
