Automap rules that apply to multiple layers?

I’ve been using Tiled for a while, but am only recently trying to learn automapping.

As best I can tell, automapping rules are tied to specifically named layers. So if I want rules automate building cliffs, those rules will only apply to a single layer named ‘Cliff’ (or whatever). Problem is my workflow requires stacking up multiple layers of cliffs. I may have Cliff0, CliffUpper, etc layers in my map. Is there any way to set up rules that will apply to any layer that uses tile patterns that match the rule?

Currently, there is not. You’d have to make copies of your rule with the layers named for every possible cliff layer.

I’ve previously suggested allowing rules to act on any layer, but I don’t know if we’ll ever get that ability.
