Description narayanaras 2014-04-01 11:07:59 UTC
Take any dataset and apply Autofilter to it. (Data > Filter > Autofilter).
Then click on any column head, and select "Standard Filter" option.

The Standard Filter GUI pops up.

Set any condition (does not matter what), and press OK.

Now re-open the standard filter GUI. 
How would you reset the filter?

Desired:
1. Provide a "Reset" button at bottom, which clears the entries.
2. Provide a X button against each row of filter, to delete it.
   (When all rows are deleted, the filter is effectively reset)

Hi @narayanaras, thanks for reporting.

You are right, it is not too much obvious.

Go to the field of the first condition and select -non- at the top.

You can use the same way to delete from any particular condition the rest of condition.

Change the status to New, and the importance from normal to enhancement.

I am working on this. Above I have attached a demo of the reset ("Clear") button and the "X" buttons in my patch.

I hope to check this with the design team later today.
