#53 Import existing linefilter to new dialog

Kimmo Varis

Currently we don't import existing linefilter strings to new linefilter dialog. This can be considered as dataloss if user has long and complex filter ready.

I think what we'll need to do is:
- check if there exists old filter but no new filters (as in startup of new release for a first time) then import the old filter into new
- parse the old "multiline" filter string to separate filters
- inform user about import with messagebox
- if new filters already exist, don't import old filter (to avoid importing it multiple times)
- no need to delete old filter to keep support for old release

    Attaching a patch.

    This patch imports old linefilters to new dialog. It doesn't inform user in any way. Maybe it is best to not confuse users about this.

    File Added: ImportOldLineFilters.zip
