I agree that this would be a "nice to have" feature.

Well, if a simple "hide" switch is not sufficient in your opinion, I would
prefer to organise filters in "filter groups". You would then define a
filter group for a given "task", give it a recognizable name, add or remove
filters to/from this group in the filter editor and select the filter group
with the filters to be shown.
You could define a filter group "FamilyLines" where you define a
"motherLine", "fatherLine" or "spouseLine" filter in the peoples view and
filters with the same name in the media view to show only media objects
related to these family lines. And a second filter group could be
"IncompleteData" with different filters to show items according to data

Ok, I understand how you would define these group, but I don't see how you would then select a filter in the filter sidebar easily. Can you give that some thought? I don't mind groups (like a treeview) in the filter editor, but the main requirement here is to have an easier way to select filters in the filter sidebar and other places (the reports/tools).


Wouldn't that be even more comfortable?

For my (current) needs however a simple "hide" checkbox would be sufficient.
