Subject: Filtering entity selection

Filtering a selection is an efficient way to select a set of entities that have something in common. For example, you can select all entities with the same property such as color, all entities that are proxies, or all entities with the same value, block name, or type. You can even add or remove more filters to a set of entities to further customize the selection.
