    Default enough

    Are these sentences all correct:
    1-I did it slowly enough that you may see how it is done.
    2-I did it slowly enough for you to see how it is done.

    3-I did it so slowly that you may see how it is done.

    4-I did it slowly enough that you saw how it is done.

    To me 3 sounds odd.

    1 and 2 imply that my intention was that you see how it is done (maybe you didn't pay attention and didn't see), while 4 implies that the result was that you saw how it is done (maybe that wasn't my intention).

    Am I correct?

    3- slowly so that??

    I agree that 4 could be unintentional.

    Again, I'd use 'might' in #1, but others might disagree.
