I've been using the new 'filter track' option to create macros so I can only see my, for example, drums or guitars etc. However, I cannot assign a 'clear filter' keyboard shortcut. So if I use my 'show drums' filter, followed by my 'show guitars' filter, I then can't go back to the previous state, before I used the filters. My only options are 'undo visibility state' but this takes me back one by one through my last steps and can be messy. Or I can use the 'show all tracks' option - but maybe I don't want to show all tracks. I use a lot of outboard routing and have some tracks purposely hidden and disabled at various times.

So a 'clear filter' keyboard shortcut/command would be great for me.

That's true, good request!

As a workaround you could use "a,b,c,d,e,f,g,a,h,i,j,k,l,m,n,o,p,q,r,s,t,u,v,w,x,y,z,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0, " as filter string.
