Something that's been really frustrating me recently is this: I need to have certain filters stay at what the viewer selects after using a bookmark, but I can't figure out how to do this. That is to say, I want the bookmark to ignore certain filters.
Here is an example of the behaviour I want:
- Default state: There are filters for the following attributes: A=1, B=2, C=3, D=4. This is bookmark Alpha. There is also a bookmark, bookmark Beta, for A=5, B=6, which does not affect filters C and D.
- The user changes filter C to C=7, because they are curious what the data looks like there. Now they want to use bookmark Beta to see what that data looks like with A=5, B=6, but still C=7. They click bookmark Beta, which gives them this information, because this bookmark only affects filters A and B.
- The user clicks bookmark Alpha to reset the information to the default filters (A=1, B=2, C=3, D=4).
- The user changes filter C to C=8, then clicks bookmark Beta. This results in A=5, B=6, C=8, D=4, because bookmark Beta does not affect filter C.
Is this behavior possible? If I tried this using my current knowledge of bookmarks, pressing any of the bookmarks would reset filter C to C=3, which I don't want!
If it's possible to have a filter that all bookmarks ignore, that'd be fine as well... I just need some way to unlink filters from bookmarks!
