Porting segment rule

If you want to bring a segment rule that you wrote from one machine to another, you do not need to copy the definition text from the Segment view. Instead, you can copy the rule using a project file as a carrier.

Create a new project, select the segment rule you want to port, and then save the project with a name. When you open this file on another user's system, the rule definition is copied to AppleTrans preferences of that user.

What if the target user happens to have a rule with the exact same name? In that case, AppleTrans temporarily override the existing rule by the new one during the session (unless you do not open the Segment view, that would make it persistent.)
