Layer Filter Properties Dialog Box (Layer Properties Manager)
Filters the list of layers based on the criteria that you specify.
When a layer filter is selected in the Filters panel of the Layer Properties Manager,
only the layers that match the properties specified in the filter are displayed in
the layer list. Filtering layers reduces a long list of layers to only those that
are currently relevant.
List of Options
The following options are displayed.

Displays the properties of layers that determine which layers are listed. You can
click to specify one or more properties to define the filter. All the properties specified
on a single line in the filter definition must be true to display a layer name (a
logical AND). Subsequent lines in the filter definition each specify alternative criteria
(a logical OR).
