Clash Detection Dialog, Rules Tab

Contains controls that allow you to turn on or off suppression rules for the clash detection job. Rules are applied in the order in which they are presented in the list box. By using the Up and Down buttons, you can reorder according to your preference. When two elements clash, the properties of an element are checked against the activated rules.

You can use the Rules Template dialog to create a new suppression rule based on a delivered rule. You also can duplicate rules and then change the values. Rules are stored in the job.
