Applying filters globally

Filters that have already been created can be applied to all applications, individual applications, and to individual projects. Global filters are applied in the Properties view - where you can specify how you want the filters applied (a filter can be applied directly - or its inverse can be applied). For example, if you want to set a global filter for an application, select it in the Explorer view and then open its Properties view (using the View menu or by right-clicking the application and clicking Properties).

Before you begin

If you are setting a filter for all applications or an individual project, use the Filters tab in the Properties view. If you are setting a filter for an individual application, use the Exclusions and Filters tab in the Properties view.


  1. In the Filters section of the tab, click Add.
  2. In the Select Filter dialog box, choose the filter that you want to apply globally.
  3. Optional: If you want the inverse of the filter to be applied (rather than applying the filter directly), select Invert filter.
  4. Click OK to close the Select Filter dialog box.
  5. When you have completed adding filters, save the changes in the Properties view.
