Very convenient. Love it.

How to set up custom filter (reiterating what the author said):
1. Open card browser and enter the filter combination you want to save
2. Open "Go" tab (or just select the "Filter" button to the left of the search line where you put your filters)
3. Select "Filter"
4. Choose option "Save current filter" and name it.
5. Access your custom filters at "My Filters on the left"

Really great, my sidebar is so clean now! How do I use the "My Filters" function? I checked in Preferences but didn't find it.
Comment from author
To use custom filters you should create one by selecting the menu item "Save current filter ..." under the "Filter..." button on the sidebar panel and after that saved filter appears in the tree. I noticed saving function is broken in the anki v2.1.25 (I tested it) and fixed in the v2.1.26. So please update your anki on the latest version. And yes, I didn't add an option for filters in the preferences. I will add it to the next addon release.

please add some kind of functionality to expand/COLLAPSE the tags in the side bar... I've got 30,000 med school cards and the side bar scrolls FOREVER with all of the tags used!! Otherwise very helpful.

To expand/collapse the tags you may use the 'Hierarchical Tags Addon (2.0 => 2.1)'
