Description Rainer Bielefeld 2013-06-17 05:55:09 UTC
I think the menu pulldown is inconsistent, menu
1. 'Data -> Filter -> Standard Filter' will allow to proceed a
    Standard Filter action (opens the related dialog)
2. 'Data -> Filter -> Advanced Filter' will allow to proceed an
    Advanced Filter action (opens the related dialog)
3.  'Data -> Filter -> Auto Filter' unexpectedly will NOT allow to proceed a
    Auto Filter action (opens the related dialog), but Toggles Auto Filter
    visible <-> invisible.

I think because of 3. the current Auto Filter menu Item should be moved to the end of the menu dropdwon into the group already containing "Hide Auto Filter", because it does not proceed a filter. Alternatively there can be added a separator between Autofilter Item and Standard Filter item to show that Auto filter menu item function is different to the other filter items.

Data - Filter can be improved by canceling "Hide AutoFilter" because AutoFilter itself is with on/off behavior.
Furthermore, "Remove Filter" can also be canceled by enabling on/off behavior to Standard Filter... and Advanced Filter..., just like AutoFilter.
IMHO AutoFilter shouldn't be at the end because it is the most used filter.
