A checkbox for each filter in the 'Filters' window

A checkbox for each filter in the 'Filters' window

It would be great to have a check box to enable/disable a filter in the 'Filters' list in Visibility/Graphic overrides or view templates. I know you can add and remove filters, but most of the time you just want to disable them for a while and then reuse them later without having to add all the overrides again. We work with multiple filters and it's a pain to reset the overrides (which stay the same normally) each time we reuse them.

I attached a photo of the overrides I'm talking about. It could be a column with a checkbox, just like the 'Halftone', but saying 'Enable', you check the box and the filter is enabled, uncheck to disable. That would make working with filters easier and more efficient.

*For some reason the photo I attached didn't open and I added it again but was unable to delete the previous one. This is the reason there's two identical attachments.

Hi,

 

For me, it looks like it already is like you would like to be.

In my visibility, it looks exactly as in the picture you have attached.

 

Maybe I understand something wrong.

ubaldurban, the attached picture is just a screenshot to show my situation, I didn't photoshop it or anything. What I am showing is a situation where I already have overrides attributed to filters and would not like that information to disappear when I need to switch a filter off (i.e. delete it from that list). What I am suggesting is having another column, with a checkbox, saying 'Enable Filter', it would be similar to the column 'Include' in the View template window and would save us the trouble of setting all the overrides again for filters once we need them again.

It would also be great if we could somehow save the overrides attributed to filters and use them over multiple view templates or between projects. There is the workaround of making the master template that includes the necessary filters and then duplicating it, but we all have situations where we couldn't have known beforehand and an easier transfer of information would be very helpful.

Yes, you are right - I understood your post wrong. 

When you thick off "Visibility" now you can not see filtered element at all.

But you would like to just hide the override. All clear now! 

 

Sorry for the misunderstanding. I give it a Vote!

Yes, visibility hides the filtered elements, while an 'Enable/Disable' checkbox would allow to cancel the filter.

Thank you!
