Sets an edict (action code) to be run on the note, but infrequently.

In effect this is a low priority rule ($Rule) for tasks that do require to run more than once but not with great frequency. Execution of the edict can be suppressed via $EditDisabled. This allows the edict code to remain stored in the attribute but for it to have no effect.

$Edict can be set via the Action Inspector ▸ Edict tab's input box.
