The Filters screen allows you to view items that only meet specific criteria. A filter has one or more
conditions that must be met. An example of a condition is "the Book Genre is fiction".
The set of filters are specific to the current category, location, or action. You can create one or more saved
filters to make it easy to reuse filters you may use often. Or you can use the Quick filter to quickly filter
the current item list in a new way.
You can apply more than one filter to the item list. This allows you to create finer grained filters that can
then be mixed together to view just the desired items.
The Filters screen has a button to clear the current filter. Below this is the Quick filter section. The last
section is the list of saved filters, if any, you have created. A summary of each filter's conditions is
displayed below the name of the filter.

Tapping the Clear Filter button removes any applied filters from the current item list allowing you to see
