Use ellipses

Enables the Use ellipses display option for subsequent object names dragged to the Rule editor. The Use ellipses options causes lengthy object names to display the shortest possible object name.

Rather than having the entire name appear, unique portions of the name are replaced with a period (.) that is used as an abbreviation of ellipses ( ... ).

Complete object name: Company Field:Record:Input

Shortened name: Company Field:.:Input

If the Use ellipses option is enabled, the shortest object name that is different from all other object names in the same map is used. Some object names may not include ellipses, because the shortest unique name is the entire name.

The Use ellipses option does not affect object names that already exist in map rules; it only affects object names that are entered after the option is enabled.
