Unfilter current map content in Add Link dialog

(I know you guys are going to get sick of hearing from me soon!)

I thought of another feature request that I'd like to throw out there. I often have to PowerFilter my map because of it's size, so I have come up with yet another "large map management" feature request: Add a radio button option on the "Topics in this Map" tab of the Add Link dialog that allows you to remove the filter from the topic list without having to remove the filter from the map itself.

My map takes about 20-30 seconds or so to refresh after I remove the PowerFilter because of it's size and I regularly need to create links to items that,as Murphy's Law would have it, are not visible on the filtered map view i am working off of.

Stay tuned. I'm sure I'll have another idea in the next 15 minutes :)

I'm assuming this situation follows on from your suggestion for a full filter facility in the Add Link dialogue box and arises because at the moment you have to filter the map before going to the Add Link feature. Obviously the ability to both filter and unfilter inside Add Link is the best option, but if that isn't possible then at least a facility to unfilter would be helpful.

Yep, your assumption is correct :) Though, I am usually in a filtered map to begin with and need to make a reference to an item that is, at that moment, not visible on the map. I spend most of my time these days working on a filtered version of my map because it is too unwieldy otherwise.
