Changing filters to select/deselect

You can change whether the available filter options select or deselect the specified items. By default, filters select items, meaning that the resulting selection only includes the item being filtered.

When filters are set to deselect, the resulting selection includes everything except the item being filtered.


  • Change the filter behavior in one of the following ways:
    • To change filters to select, choose Edit > Filter > Select Only.

    • To change filters to deselect, choose Edit > Filter > Deselect Only.


    You can also choose these options from the context menu.
