This post I have read at least 10 times. I have the highest regard for Robert and he is one of our biggest helpers on this forum.
"Hitting "Update Rule" will, among other things, un-pause the rule" I find this confusing. If I create a new 5.1 rule on my C7 with platform 126.96.36.199, install it, but stay in the rule and hit pause while not in the editing mode, but in the view rule mode (see image)
Notice the rule is paused at this point. Now I hit Update and the rule is still paused.
And it is reflected as paused on the rules listing
Now if I hit DONE it will take me back to the apps list and the rule is NOT shown as paused, per Robert's post. So DONE nor UPDATE un-pauses the rule - you can prove this by opening the rule for editing and it is still paused, but not reflected as such in the rules list.
Lastly, I had promised Bruce that I wouldn't post anymore "paused" comments in 2021 - sorry Bruce I couldn't help myself.
And the last comment - while the rule is not listed as paused on the apps list, it will change to paused overnight....LOL This is all very confusing to me.
As I see it right now when I finish editing a rule and am at the "Define a Rule" screen - the changes I've made are already saved and hitting DONE is detrimental as it will cause the paused condition to not be reflected on the apps screen. Do I FINALLY have this right in my head?
I apologize if this is terribly confusing and my documentation is very poor.
