|Changing what types of variables are listed in the variables list Showing or hiding types of variables The first five buttons at the top of the variables list have the same icons as the buttons in the rule editor panel. They control which of all the global variables are listed. If a button is down, variables used in that way in a rule (as context, move, requirement, change, or command) show up in the variables list. To turn on or off variables used in any of the five ways, click the button with the corresponding picture. Showing or hiding only true variables or all variables The last button at the top of the variables list (with the plus picture) controls whether all the variables, or only the true variables, selected by the first five buttons are shown in the list. To show only true variables, click the plus button until it is pushed in. To show all variables, click the plus button until it is pushed out. An example In this example the first two buttons, context and move, are pushed down, so the only variables showing in the list are those that are used as contexts or moves. The plus button is up, so all variables are showing. The “rope ladder” variable is used as a context, but not a move. This may mean that it is not yet connected properly. It may also mean it is defined by the first rule which is automatically moved to at the start of a session. Or, it may instead mean that it is intentionally used as other than a location. Useages in contexts and moves or requirements and changes do not have to be complementary, but they usually are. An example of the variables list|
