Fast multiple segments selection

Dear Graphext users,

This week at Graphext, we're introducing a series of keyboard shortcuts designed to make your filtering process in the cross filters significantly more efficient. We understand that working with data often involves dealing with variables that have a wide range of categories, and selecting or deselecting these manually can be time-consuming. That's why we've implemented these shortcuts to streamline your workflow.

What's New?

  • Selecting a Range of Categories: Now, you can easily select all categories between two points with just a couple of clicks. Click on the first category, then click on the last category while holding down the SHIFT key. This will select both categories and everything in between.
  • Adding or Removing Categories: To add or remove a single category from your selection, simply hold down the CMD key (on Mac) or the CTRL key (on Windows) while clicking the category. This feature is particularly handy when you want to maintain most categories but exclude just a few, especially with variables that have a high number of categories.

Why This Matters:

These enhancements are all about saving you time and making your data analysis workflow smoother. By allowing for quicker selection and deselection of categories, we hope to significantly reduce the time you spend on manual tasks, freeing you up to focus on the more critical aspects of your analysis.
