Using Rules To Apply Conditional Formatting
Rules can be used to easily apply conditional formatting to shapes in your workspace.
Here's how you can add a rule:
- Open the Rules panel and click on the Add New Rule button
- Give a suitable name to your rule
- Select the data field you want to use
- Select the suitable operator from the dropdown menu
- Type the value you want to highlight or find
- Select the formatting you would like to add
- Click on the Add Rule button
Adding A Rule
Note1: At the moment, the app only allows Fill Color, Line Color and Line Thickness as the available conditional formatting options.
Note2: The Data Item dropdown will only show the data fields you have edited. The data on a default field or a newly added field of a shape will need to be edited to appear here.
Only Edited Fields Are Shown To Select
You can add more than one rule to a workspace.
However, only the rule at the top of the list will be applied. When you want to use a previously added rule, you can use the Move Up option to bring the rule up.
Using Multiple Rules
You could also activate and deactivate rules using the Active for All and Inactive for All options.
