A compound filter consists of more than one simple filter. Simple filters are added to the compound filter either by dragging the simple filter to the compound filter folder or by creating new simple filters under the compound filter in the filter hierarchy. Compound filters apply only to homogeneous item types. This dialog box specifies the properties of a compound filter, including the name, description, and whether to match all or any of the simple filter criteria. Compound filters cannot be used to create exclusions in Smart P&ID Insulation Specification Manager. You open this dialog box when you click Properties on the Exclusion Filters dialog box.
