Comment 1 Dave Malcolm 2005-05-19 17:29:19 UTC
I just tried this in Evolution 2.2.2:
1: Open the filters window to view filters
2: Behind the open window try and create a filter (by right-clicking on an
email; Create Rule from Message->Filter on something... OK); filter does not
appear in the existing filter dialog.
3a: Press "Cancel" button in the filter dialog, reopen the filter dialog. 
Filter created in stage does appear in the new filter dialog
3b: Press "Ok" button in the filter dialog, reoper the filter dialog: filter
created in stage 2 does not appear.

So it looks like a the filter dialog really ought to update its state if you do
stage 2; arguably the filter dialog ought to be "instant apply" as well,
replacing the Cancel/OK buttons with a single "OK" button.

Please check upstream; if the bug is not already filed, please file one, and
link this bug to it.  Please CC me on the new or existing bug; thanks!
