Cloning a Rule Set

Rule sets are used to guide the conversion of your documents. You can clone an existing rule set at any time.

You can clone an existing rule set at any time. Cloning is helpful if you need to start working with a document which is part of a different documentation set. The cloned rule set provides a good starting point for building up the rules for the new documentation type. Cloning a rule set can also be a good idea if you plan to make significant changes to an existing rule set. If you are not happy with the results, you can always delete the cloned rule set. You will still have the original to go back to if necessary. Cloning is therefore a good way to make backups of your rule sets.

Procedure #

  1. Go to the Rule Sets page.
  2. Select the rule set or sets which you would like to clone.
  3. Click the Clone button.

Result #

Your rule set has been cloned. Apart from having a different name, the new rule set is identical to the one you cloned.

Once you are done #

Now is a good time to associate the new rule set to one or more documents. This has to be done before you can edit the rule set.
