Default How do I use conditional formatting for multiple rows?

I have a spreadsheet that tracks several orders (a different order on each
row) and I would like to use conditional formatting to shade different cells
for different conditions. When I apply the formatting to a range of cells,
the formatting is only applied if the condition is met for the entire range.
However, my orders are in different stages for each row. Do I have to apply
the formatting for each cell on each row individually or is there a faster
way to conditionally format several rows at once? Also, can I make the
formatting apply to new entries that are inserted in the middle of other rows
with the same conditions and formats?

You can select all the cells, and apply the formatting to the active
cell, using relative references.

There's an example he
