Does anyone know if it's possible to use items in an icon group as effects within SmartRules?

I have multiple icon groups that I use because an icon is so much more useful & quicker at relaying context than just a text marker (no matter how appropriately coloured).

Is it possible? If not, then does anyone know why not?

This is interesting - I thought the answer would be straightforward but it's not.

Unlike text tags, SmartRule effects don't seem to recognise icon groups in the map index - you choose the icon from within the generic marker icon library folders. However, once you have set up an icon group containing the subset of icons you want to use, the topics with the selected icon will be counted in the icon group in the map index when the rule is applied.

Yep, I figured out that workaround too but was hoping someone could come up with a less manual solution.

Seems to be quite an oversight.
