I have several view filters. One view filter causes a group of things to not display. However when I add a second view filter that should cause items to display. The 'winning' filter is the one that causes items to not display. Can I change this? Make one view filter take precedence over another?
Solved! Go to Solution.
If two or more View FIlters are affecting the same element(s) and if ANY of them turn them off, make them halftone, or apply one of the "checkbox" options, those elements are turned off, halftoned, etc. - The View Filters apply these options if they are selected, and ignore the options if not selected, so a View FIlter won't turn elements back on if another one has turned them off.
If two or more View FIlters are affecting the same element(s) which are applying conflicting effects (such as line color), the View filter that is higher on the list is the 'Winning Filter'.
Added comment: At least that is how it works in 2012 and up. (I broke my 2011 so I can't test it there!)
Thanks, this got me on the right track to controlling things the way I want to.
