thanks for your remarks.

If I add the confirmation dialog, this item will be taken care of as well.
The point is, that i want a way to save my changes and exit the dialog, without applying the rules.
CintaNotes Developer wrote:Should it re-apply ALL rules, or only selected ones? Re-applying ALL rules to ALL notes can be massive, especially if rules have some heavy conditions like "any text field contains.."Instead add a button "Apply rules" inside the rule editor.
I think you already gave the answer. Allow me to either apply selected rules only or all rules at once. Also using a context menu, one rule only can be applied.
CintaNotes Developer wrote:Another request is to add a button "create backup now" inside the rule editor or add a confirmation-dialog "create backup", when i click "OK". Maybe add a checkbox "[X] create backup before applying rules".
So I think I'll add an on-by-default checkbox to create backup to the "Rules changed - apply to existing notes?" confirmation box we discussed earlier.

Sorry, obviously it did not make it to the roadmap yet. However i was able to find the related thread here in the forum tag workflow
CintaNotes Developer wrote:I don't quite understand why you don't want to press Ctrl+S to see the rules applied?
Yep, i think you're correct. I will be able to save the note and remain inside the editor to verify everything is fine.
CintaNotes Developer wrote:Also there's a problem with correctly defining what is a new note. Say CN downloads a note from Simplenote - is it a new note or not?
Thanks i am aware of the Inbox. A new note is a note opened in the note editor and not saved at all.
CintaNotes Developer wrote:By creating such a rule, you're effectively saying to CN: "I want all notes with the tag 'Delphi' to be always located in the 'Development' section". And it does what you tell it to do.
That's why i am asking to be able to apply a rule only, when the note has not been saved yet. Then i will be able to apply a rule only once the note is saved for the very first time.
Remark: As for your remarks on issues i did not reply to today, i agree with your answers and comments.
