Rule editor

The Rule editor is one of the main components of the Map Designer user interface.

The Rule editor is used to display and enter map rules for the selected object on the output card in the Map editor.

When you select a rule cell on the output card in the Map editor, the rule appears in the Rule editor. Changes to map rules are made and committed in the Rule editor.

Non-printable characters do not display in the Rule editor, but display in the rule cell on the output card in the Map editor as ☐.

You can type in extra spaces in a map rule to make it easier to read. Line feeds are not required, but may improve the way the rules are displayed. In addition, you can create a new line where you want one.

Text literals enclosed in quotation marks may not contain new lines.
