Using ellipses to shorten an object name

About this task

Use ellipses to have object names in map rules.

To have new object names appear with ellipses:


  1. Click Window > Preferences > Transformation Extender > Type Tree > Group Window. The Group window appears.
  2. Select the Use ellipses check box.
  3. Click OK.

    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 selected.


Using the Group window to select Use ellipses, changes the setting in your Options Rule Bar utility.
