Filters - Improvements

Question

Hello

 

Would anyone find it useful if filters had an option to 'hide' all layers or classes not captured by the filter?

 

For example, when filtering layers by keyword 'Structure' for example, it would be useful if all layers that don't have the keyword 'Structure' were hidden.

 

A checkbox when creating the filter would be great.

While we're on the subject of Filter improvements, could we please be able to assign more than one set of criteria per filter?  I would love to have a filter that shows all layers with either "Lighting" or "Architecture" tags, for instance.  Right now, I have to assign the "Lighting" tag to all architecture layers as well as lighting layers if I want a working filter.  So all architecture layers end up with tags for Lighting, Scenic, Audio, Projection, etc so that each discipline can have a filter.

Additive filters would be very useful, similar to how the custom selection tool works. specify one tag and then show more options and add a second. Class filters would also benefit from this.

Ps

 

I don’t recall if it’s possible but if you are able to add a description to the layer would that help in this particular instance or not?

In answer to my question... no, layer and class descriptions are not available as filters.

 

question is ‘why not?’  This would be hugely beneficial.

 

also tag filters definitely need to be additive or capable of being defined by keyword
