Viewing Current Filter Properties
A filter allows you to display only the parts of a collection or structure that interest you. For example, if you have a large part structure, you can apply a filter to display only the latest version of each part in the structure. The filter properties action launches the Filter Properties window, which displays the filters currently applied to a collection or structure in expandable sections. You cannot edit filters from the Filter Properties window. For more information about editing filters, see Editing Filters.
The filter properties action is available from multiple locations in Windchill. The filters displayed in the Filter Properties window depend on the collection or structure from which you launch the action.
You can launch the Filter Properties window from the following objects or from actions that employ the collector tool:
