1.1. Known Issues

In some cases, after a Colored Shape Filter is applied, the drop-down box will display as "No Colored Shape Filter" when you return to the editor. Workaround is to validate that the Colored Shape Filter is working properly, even though it is not displayed as being selected in the configuration panel.
