"Try silently" and After rules

Does try silently not affect text printed in “after” rules? Does it just skip the report rulebook? Is there some way to check if an action is being performed silently (From within an action rulebook)?

There’s a phrase “if the action is not silent…”. (Only exists in the negative; you’d have to define your own “if the action is silent…”) All the standard report rules make this test before printing.

Ah, I see. Thank you.
