Method to clear custom filters?

Recommended Posts

Sometimes when searching for a movie to watch I will set numerous filter criteria (Unplayed - Action - 2014 - PG13) for example.

 

After Ive found what Im looking for its sort of cumbersome to have to go back in and unselect all the above individually.

 

Any chance we can get a "clear all" button of some sort to get you back to viewing your entire library unfiltered?

 

Plex does this and its very convenient.

 

Thanks!

I'd like to also throw my hat in for this request to easily remove all filters.

It will be in the upcoming 4.6 release. Thanks.

Where exactly on the following screenshot should I look for it?

Can anyone give me a hint to where I find that "clear all" button?
I can't find it anywhere...

there isnt one. you still have to uncheck what has been checked

Then why the heck does Luke say it's in 4.6?
Now I'm confused...

@Luke, what was this post of yours (the one marked as solution in this topic) referring to if the "clear all" button isn't implemented yet?

to me this is the problem with marking things as a solution. you can't tell who has done it.

has luke marked it as solved because he has implemented it or has the OP marked it as solved because luke has said he will implement it. in this case i think its the second and it hasnt yet been done

It is sort of there in 4.6 but only in conditions that remove all items.

It might be there in some edge cases but it definitely isn't there as a user would expect it.
A dev saying it is in 4.6 and then not seeing it there isn't really satisfactory from a user point of view.

So, if I understand your screenshot correctly then we have a clear button if the selected filters are not applicable.
Question: Who the hell filters to end up with no results? (apart from testing)
The real use-case is having multiple filter criteria that are applicable and show results.

Just my 2 cents though...

Can we get this in the header for filters.

Or another way to reset filters as a lot of these check/uncheck filter options can be tedious.
