  • Section: Before and Instead rules

    You can prevent multiexamining taking place using "Before" and "Instead" rules but you need to use these with caution. A rule like:

        Before multiexamining apples: examine the orchard instead.

    will fire on "EXAMINE ALL APPLES" but also "EXAMINE APPLE AND MONKEY" and not on "EXAMINE MONKEY AND APPLE". Better would be

        Before multiexamining when considering nothing but apples: examine the orchard instead.

    where the phrases "considering only <a description>" is a new one defined by this extension.
