Copy rules from Smart Mailbox to Mailbox Rules

Reported by Jon | February 15th, 2019 @ 08:16 PM

What I tend to do when figuring out rule conditions is I set up a temporary smart mailbox to see the affected messages.
Is there an easy way to then copy these conditions over to a mailbox for use in a rule?

I noticed that when in the Edit Mailbox view of a Smart Mailbox, you can drag the conditions around, but you can't drop them in the Conditions for a mailbox rule.

    I looked into this and it doesn't seem like I can make this work easily (using the Apple GUI class used for conditions). At least not where you can drag'n'drop to a specific position in the conditions. But I can probably hack that one can drop on the rule editor to simply have them added to the end of the list of conditions. That would be better than nothing.
