Ruleset management question

Hi Hendrik:

I make frequent use of matchlists using custom rulesets. My questions right now are:

  • Can an existing ruleset be renamed? I tried renaming one of my rulesets by giving it a new name in the Preferences > Song Matching box, but it didn't seem to "stick".
  • Can a ruleset be deleted? I tried deleting one of my custom rulesets by pressing the "-" sign next to the Active Ruleset name in the Preferences > Song Matching Preferences box, but it didn't go away.

I tried exiting and restarting beaTunes in case it needed to reload its db for the changes to take effect, but that didn't help either.

I can create new rulesets, no problem. But I'd like to do some housekeeping and get rid of some I don't need. And I would like to rename a ruleset on occasion, especially after I modify its matching criteria.

    Hey Richard,

    Can an existing ruleset be renamed?

    Yes. In the beaTunes preferences, choose the Song Matching tab, the the ruleset you want to rename and simply type into the name field for it.

    Can a ruleset be deleted?

    Yes. Simply select is and press the - button.

    As you said, you tried both these things and somehow they didn't work. Could you please try both things again and right afterwards upload your logs?

    Thank you,
