MLO使用指导:More Advanced Features-Automatic Formatting 自动格式

MyLife Organized的自动格式是指基于任务的属性,通过设置规则来格式单个任务。

Automatic Formatting uses rules to format tasks individually, based on their properties.

For example, you may want to underline and set an icon for all the tasks that were created this week and contain the word “report” in the subject. Below is how you can do this.

例如,要对所有这周创建的且标题里含有“Report”的任务添加下滑线并设置图标,下面将给出创建该自动格式的详细说明。

To create a custom Automatic Formatting rule
创建个性化自动格式规则的步骤:
1. Click menu Tools > Options…, select the Automatic Formatting page, and click Automatic Formatting Rules… .
2. To create a new rule, click Add… in the Automatic Formatting dialog and then edit the rule name in Rule name text input.
3. Click Condition… to set rules for the tasks to be formatted
4. In the Setup AutoFormat Rule dialog create two rules:
4.1. For tasks created this week:
4.1.1 Click Add rule
4.1.2 Select field CreatedDateTime
4.1.3 Select condition This week
4.1.4 Make sure that operation And is selected for the next rule.
4.2 For tasks with the word “report” in the caption:
4.2.1 Click Add rule
4.2.2 Select field Caption
4.2.3 Select condition Contains
4.2.4 Type ‘report’ in the text input
4.3 Click OK to close the condition editor dialog
5. Click the Format… button to add formatting for the tasks you selected.
In our example check the Underline check box in the Color Coding dialog and click OK.
6. Click Icon… and select an icon you want add for the tasks.
   Tip: You can add your icons to the list by clicking Manage icons…     
7. Type the icon position where the icons should be displayed.
Type 1 or 2 or 3 etc to display the icon in the corresponding position in the Icons column
Type 0 to display the icon before the task caption in the task tree.
8.  In the Icon hint, you can type text which will be displayed as the hint for the icon.
For example “Report tasks created this week”.
9. Click OK to close the Automatic Formatting dialog and Close to close Options.

1.点击菜单栏“工具〉选项…”,再选择“自动格式”,然后点击“自动格式规则…”。
2.  在弹出的自动格式对话框,点击“添加…”,在规则名称文本框编辑规则命名。
3.  点击“条件…”对要格式的任务设置规则。
4.  在设置自动格式规则对话框创建下面两条规则:
4.1 这周创建的任务:
4.1.1 点击“添加规则”
4.1.2 选择“创建日期时间”
4.1.3 选择条件“本周”
4.1.4 选择And 以联结下一条规则
4.2 标题里含有“Report”字样的任务:
4.2.1 点击“添加规则”
4.2.2 选择“标题”
4.2.3 选择条件“包含”
4.2.4 在文本框里输入“Report”
4.3点击“确定”关闭设置自动格式规则对话框。
5.点击“格式…”按钮添加字体格式。
以我们的例子来说,在弹出的颜色代码对话框里勾选“下划线”,然后点击“确定”保存。
6.点击“图标…”,在弹出的选择图标对话框,选择你想要用于标记任务的图标。
提示:可点击“管理图标…”来添加你自己的图标。
7.输入图标位置以标识图标的显示位置。
输入1、2、3…表示图标将显示在图标栏中的相应第1、2、3…列。
输入0表示图标将显示在任务标题前。
8.“图标提示”,你可在此处写入图标说明/提示,这样当光标置于图标上时,该说明/提示就会自动显示。
例如“本周创建的报表任务”
9.点击“确定”关闭自动格式对话框,点击“关闭”关闭选项。

Now you can see that all the tasks with the specified conditions are underlined and have the icon you set.
这时你会看到,所有满足条件的任务都添加上了下划线和图标。

Note: Automatic Formatting will overwrite theme settings but will not change any custom formatting set on a task in the Format property section.
注释:自动格式能覆盖主题的设置,但是不能覆盖任务单独的自动格式。
Note: The position of the rules in the Automatic Formatting dialog is important when you set different rules for the same formatting. In this case if the first rule is applied for the task then the second rule for the same formation will not be used. The rules which change other formatting will be still used. To change the position of the rule just use Drag & Drop
注释:当你对同一格式设置了不同的规则时,规则的顺序很重要。这种情况下,如果第一条规则对任务起作用的话,第二条规则就不会作用到同一任务上,但是该规则仍然对其他格式有效。可直接拖拉规则以调整规则顺序。
For example you may define two rules which set different icons to the same position.
Rule1: If Task created today set icon New to position 1.
Rule2: If Task caption contains “!” set icon ! in position 1
例如:你定义了以下两条规则,它们要根据不同情况,在同一图标位置显示不同的图标。
规则1:如果任务是今天创建的,在图标位置1显示新建图标。
规则2:如果任务标题含有“!”,在图标位置1显示!图标。
The rules will work this way:
If the task was created today and contains “!” in the caption, you will see icon New since Rule1 overwrites Rule2 for icon position 1
If the task was created yesterday and contains “!” in the caption you will see icon ! since Rule1 does not work and Rule2 is used to place the icon to position 1
那么以上两条规则的作用机制是:
如果有一个任务是今天创建的,并且标题里含有“!”,那你会看到新建图标[New],因为在图标位置1,规则1覆盖了规则2 。
如果有一个任务是昨天创建的,并且标题里含有“!”,那你会看到!图标,因为这时规则1不起作用,规则2的作用使得!图标显示在了图标位置1上。
Note: The Icon type in the Automatic Formatting dialog contains predefined types of the icons with the following behaviour:
注释:自动格式里的图标类型包含带有以下行为的预定义类型图标:
Dependency: This icon type displays task dependency in the hint and opens the dependency editor if you click on this icon
依赖关系图标:依赖关系图标在提示里显示该任务的依赖关系。点击该图标可打开依赖关系编辑器。
Goal: This icon type displays the goal type in the hint.
目标图标:目标图标在提示里显示该任务的目标。
Notes: This icon type displays task notes in the hint and opens the notes editor if you click on this icon
注释图标:注释图标在提示里显示该任务的注释。点击该图标可打开任务注释编辑器。
Reminder: This icon type displays reminder details in the hint and opens the reminders editor if you click on this icon.
提醒图标:提醒图标在提示里显示该任务提醒的详细说明。点击该图标可打开提醒编辑器。
(Custom): This icon type displays the text you entered for the hint.
(自定义)图标:自定义图标在提示里显示用户录入的图标说明。
Tip: By default there are several optional rules that are disabled in the Automatic Formatting dialog. For example there are rules that display icons for new tasks or mark the tasks you edited recently. You may want to enable these rules to see how they work.
提示:在自动格式对话框里,有些规则在默认情况下是不勾选的。如对新建的任务显示新建图标,标记最近编辑过的任务等。你可以勾选上这些规则,看看它们是如何起作用的。
虽然这些功能你不一定要用,但可见MyLife Organized功能之强大。简单可以用,复杂的功能也随时满足你的个性需要。
