Locating a popup rule in the Automate page:
By looking at your popup thumbnails in the Popups page, you can find out which ones are attached to an automation rule. Any popup that has the icon on its thumbnail is linked to an automation rule.
To locate the popup that is assigned to a rule in the Automate page:
- In the popups page, hover over your popup thumbnail, click on the icon.
- Select Locate in Automation:
You’ll be taken to the Automate page, where the rule associated with your popup is highlighted.
