Description kabilo 2018-09-18 14:10:31 UTC
Description:
filter identifiers are not displayed when a standard filter is set (Data -> More filters -> Standard filter). It can be confused with the possibility Hide Rows. All rows can then be displayed by Show Rows, but the filter is still active - is it right?

Actual Results:
filter identifiers are not displayed when a standard filter is set from menu

Expected Results:
filter identifiers are displayed as with the autofilter, and the standard filter identifier is displayed (e.g., a checkbox)


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: No

i can confirm this, but it is the same behaviour as in openoffice,
and i am not sure if it is a bug. filters can be set via API and
this maybe is a reason not to show the filter identifiers.

workaround:
you can first set an "AutoFilter" and then select "Standard Filter..."
from the pulldown menu to switch to standared filter options.

And I guess this is similar in other spreadsheet programs..

As commented before it is common behavior to just hide the rows instead of a real filter. And while this might feel strange, most users are familiar and would complain if we change this. So let's close this as NAB.
