Re: locking/hiding – I was happy with the existing mechanism where items hide immediately after losing focus and you get a “items hidden due to filters” Toast. Adding in the dashed lines and delay feels nice though.
I quickly tested auto-expand for filters and it seems to be working nicely.
However it looks like clicking on a #tag no longer adds that tag to the filter text.
I think it’s totally appropriate for Basic filters to be limited to ANDs and negations. ORs and parentheticals are suited to Advanced filters.
Since Jay restored the click-ability of the small filter icons, I like them auto-grouping to the left.
I still don’t have an icon/button for the date filter. date:any and date:none work of course, but there used to be a Basic icon. The few Panes I have that used to use it, which I haven’t cleared yet, still display it. I don’t recall a conversation/reason for removing that Basic filter/icon.
Maybe not related to filtering changes, but [[Links created by drag/drop don’t appear right away. It’s not a question of focus or 1.5 delay…you have to do something else like expand/collapse to trigger their display.
