Don't automatcally load codes into fields when creating a new map.

When a new map is created, the fields that have codes associated with them automatically load as a standard rule. Although they're loaded, they don't do anything unless you set them but the field is still marked that there's a rule set on it. If these aren't turned off, it's much more time consuming to debug as it looks as though there are rules all over your map that may need adjusting although there really isn't as they aren't doing anything. If some customers like this, maybe there could be a setting that could turn this off or on.

How will this idea be used?

It will make mapping quicker since all fields that are automatically filled in with the standard rule will not have to be turned off.

    Is there any good reason to automatically fill in standard rules that are not in use?
