I have a question or two regarding profiles. Here is what I'm trying to accomplish: When I run Waze, I want to run Twilight with a "Waze" profile, which will strongly dim the screen but not change the color scheme (since the usual "warming" effect makes the Waze map hard for me to see while driving). The "Waze" profile should be tied to my actual sunrise/sunset times.

On the other hand, when I'm not running Waze, I would like to run the "Default" profile (or something like it), with dimming/"warming" deferred for a few hours after sunset, or perhaps until a set time at night.

So far, I've managed to have Tasker turn on Twilight and invoke the "Waze" profile when I start my "Run Waze" task; and I've got Tasker turning Twilight off again when Waze terminates. My problem is with what should have been the simple part: setting up a separate schedule for the non-Waze profile that works with different timing than my "Waze" profile. For some reason, when I change the scheduling for one profile, the change seems to affect all profiles.

Am I doing something wrong here? I seem to have mastered the "send intent" stuff, but my problems are (mostly) inside Twilight itself. (On the other hand, I would love to get more detailed documentation of the various send-intent options for Twilight - for example, "toggle" is mentioned without any description of what it does.)

Thanks in advance for your help!
