    Question Permanent Rule Set?

    Is there a way to create, and maintain, a permanent set of rules so when I open a new route or route my standard set of rules is presented. There seems to be a vendor set and no way to add or subtract.

    The only way that I can think of is to create a dummy session for a dummy route and add to it all the rules you want in your sessions. Load this into surveyor before you start your proper session.

    In the Session Editor highlight all the rules, right mouse click on any one of them and select Copy.

    Close the session and route.

    Load the new route into surveyor and open the Session Editor

    Delete all the vendor supplied rules

    Right mouse click in the now blank rules area and select paste.

    I do similar for my permanent rules. I create a new session and add a new rule at the top, like the list rule and put all my rules underneath it, click the green arrow on the top rule and they all collapse into it. Then copy the list rule, start another session and copy it in. Hit the green arrow and they will all display. You may have to move some of them to the left or right to maintain their sequence correctly. Once that is done save the session as your base session. Then from that point you just have to open it and paste it all in your new session.

    Wow... Somewhere there is a vendor permanent rule set maintained. The small amount of code needed to either modify that or allow a parallel copy to be altered by the CUSTOMER seems like something an intern programmer could do. It is mostly a matter of copying existing code and registering it with the managing system as an editing function.

    I agree there has to be something somewhere such as a default set. The other possibility is to have an option not to load the default set and load a custom list instead.

    While on the subject of driver rule- and command-sets, it would be nice if we could group the commands by function and put in our own dividers in between the sections, which would make things a lot easier too when searching the long list for commands.
