    On the operand section,

    When set to 'Field' I want to know why no field values appear in the picklist.  For example in my custom flow when I have the filter in my previous lookup set to the variables I intend to use (actually, I'm not sure whether that is related).

    I need to know when to use 'value', and when to use 'expression'.  I have a response mapped field  called K_data (mapped from data), and the filter doesn't work when I set the operand type to 'value', but it does for 'expression'.  Why?

    In the section "Navigating the filter editor", in the first picture, is 'NOT' enable or is 'NOT' disabled?

    I'm 99% certain the picture is the opposite of the text, and the text is wrong.  The default when creating a new filter appears to be to have NOT enabled.

    Another thing that would be extremely helpful would be to describe the syntax/formating for the various Operand Type options.  Do I need to put Operands in quotes  (e.g. "Opp_data"), and does that answer change based on the Operand Type?  What about the values that I'm looking for (the right side or RVALs)? Do they need to be open? in single quotes? in double quotes?  and does the type of single quote matter like it does in SOQL queries where I can't paste in the fancy curved single quotes that a Google Doc generates? (That is a terrible thing to have to debug, by the way. I edited my query in a google doc and pasted it into the SOQL query window and spent a full day trying to figure out that it wouldn't work because google doc only allows you to type curved quotes, and the query ONLY understood straight ones).

    Can I put in an array name to see if 'is empty', or can I only put in individual values (array[0].member)? and, how do I format a member?  array.member?  array.0.member?  array[0].member?

    It would also be good to explain that I can paste a JSON file into the Input window, and use it to test my filter.  and that I can get that json file from Retry Data.

    Are there any funny things about it? Do I need to save the filter each time I change it before I click on the 'Preview' button? Do I need to recreate the filter each time I edit the Input data?

    This may seem obvious to you, but it was not obvious to me, and I lost a lot of time testing the hard way.
