small feature request Sun Oct 07, 2018 3:11 am • by HaanGermany
Often I have documents that aren’t in good quality. Therefore sometimes a rule doesn’t work. Most likely a contents-contain rule.
However, would it be not great if I could change this rule into comment, instead of delete the rule?

Could you please consider it for a next release?

How about deactivating it? You can do that by unchecking it.

Not sure, if I understood you right, you mean unchecking the full rule, right? That was not my topic, I mean a condition in a rule. Now clear?

There's no way to deactivate a condition. You can try putting it in a nested condition such that it is basically ineffective. Something like:
Code: Select all
    If (all) are met
        If (none) are met
            Any file
            <<your condition>>

Since "any file" is always true, the "if (none)" condition will always fail.

l.


I know that there's no way! This is why I ask for making a feature request out this.

Sure, but it's not something that will appear soon, if at all. For now, my suggestion is the only way to deal with it.

Thx. I was aware using Nested Conditions. With this trigger I found the description and I leaned something new for me.
I'll try it soon.
