SAVED QUERIES:
i have the latest Version:10.1.459 of 2012. I added a tag group with four tags. I assigned the tags to the Topics in the map. What i wanted was to set up 4 saved queries I could easliy select each filter query by name. However when i was setting them up MM would only save the most recent query, overwriting the previuosly saved query.

I have checked this on my instance of MM 2012 Version 10.1.459 and it seems to work fine on my end.

Just to reiterate the process....

1. Open a file and click on the Power Filter (small funnel-like image on the bottom right corner [see attached image]).
2. Choose the tags you would like to filter by & determine the match type (Any = "A" or "B" | All = "A" and "B").
3. On the bottom left side there is a button "Saved Queries" and re-select "Save Query".
4. Name the Query and press save.

For the second filter query:

1. Uncheck the previous marker's filter criteria
2. Check the new filtering criteria and determine Match Type
3. Open the Saved Queries button and select "Save Query"
- (Not to be confused with "Save As... (Previous Filter)"
4. Name the Query and press save.

After you press save, you should have two different queries in the "Saved Queries" filter (see attached image).

I have used multiple saved queries in the past, and they worked. I understand the sequence.
so to check it out i created a very simple map, locally on my PC, went through the process , and it worked fine.

so i went back to the original maps i was using and followed excactly the same process:
initially the two queries show, but if i come out of the filter box, then go back to the filter drop down , only the most recent query is there.
Note: the map is more complex(but not too big), the only other difference is that it is stored on Connect, not the local drive, and it has detailed Task information on most of the topics, including dependencies.

i have the map and screen shots if you wish to see them.

AN UPDATE:

I executed a SAVE AS of the MAP from Connect, and saved it on my local drive, with a different name...
I opened that, and found that multiple "saved queries" worked OK, So i guess the issue is with Connect not storing that data correctly, even though the full 2012 desktop software is being used...
