When I filter tables in filter panel I get some list of tables according to the filter. Then I add new table in query tab, return to table list and press F5. And guess what. It shows all tables in database instead of filtered list. Then I have to change filter text by one char (delete or add) to restore filtered list of tables. It is annoying. F5 should refresh the whole database, but on the end apply filter in filter panel automatically.

Second one. Table Filter doesn't work every time. I write "sales" for example and it should show only tables beginning with "sales", but it doesn't. I have to change filter string, add some chars, delete some chars to get it work properly.

Please, fix those two, because I use them all the time and it is driving me crazy.

That filter does not look for text at the beginning of table names, but also within words. So, that's not a bug, it's intentionally.

For the F5 thing - isn't it wanted to reapply a filter as long as you did not remove it? Probably not, I'm unsure about that.

I didn't write it well. Of course filter should look for text within words but it doesn't work like that. The beginning of word is within word too. It doesn't work in both ways. For your convenience, it worked maybe 2 months ago and after updates this strange behaviour began.
For the F5 thing. If I didn't remove filter it should refresh the whole database and reapply the filters, I mean both filters if they are set, Filter Table and Table Filter. It's only logical solution ;-)

Oh, you're talking about the database + table filterssmileI thought you meant the filter panel below the database tab (Ctrl+Alt+F).

You could be so nice and compare your problem with the one described in issue #3313.

The table filter beside database filter doesn't work well and the results are totally unpredictable. It is very annoying. A s I see other users have problems too.
The filter panel below the database tab works like a charm, but it should be reapplied when I press F5, the same with the table filter beside database filter.
I like red cross in the filter panel and it should be in the table filter beside database filter too. Now I have to click little table picture and select Clear from dropdown menu.
Maybe you could set F5 for refresh and filters remain and get reapplied, and Ctrl+F5 to refresh and clear all filters. Thanks.
