Named Filter Menu Dialog
This is a new take on something that has been shared a couple of times before. Its main purpose is to provide a convenient way to access saved named filters combined with some useful companion Select options.
You can easily apply multiple filters in sequence, including ad-hoc simple or advanced filters, and you can choose to replace or add to existing selections.
Installation and Execution
- Download the attached zip file and extract filtermenu.js (the script).
- Save the script in your Script Addins folder. (easy access via /scripts alias)
- Execute the command filtermenu from a button or a hotkey or an instant command.

How Does It Work?
Hopefully self evident from the screen grabs. By default, the Edit Filters and Refresh List buttons are hidden. If you are comfortable about creating / editing / deleting filters whilst the dialog is active you can switch the buttons on by setting the edit_button option to true in the script configuration. Settings --> Preferences --> Toolbars --> Scripts --> filtermenu. The first grab is the way things look with the edit buttons hidden and the second grab with them displayed.
