This is my filter options:

94250fb1f9ea711618d5d0312ce9075b

If I filter by Priority=2, I correclty have this:

c6e23ecc6426027c36d9b2226aa15a71

But if I filter by Priority = 1, result is:

Why task4 is not filtered?

I can't reproduce this, though oddly I can induce almost the reverse.

If I filter by Priority 2 that works as expected, but if I then go into the filter and untick Priority 2 and then tick Priority 1 without clicking the Remove Filter icon I get a "There are no matching topics" message. If I do click the Remove Filter icon first the second filter seems to work correctly.

I think there may be some sort of bug relating to filtering. While your case is different I suggest that you try clicking the Remove Filter icon first (either at the bottom of the screen or in the "Map Information hidden by" dialogue at top left) whenever changing filters if you are not doing that already.

Does "task4" have the "Ignore Filters" option set? (Topic > right-click > Options > Ignore Filters)

Sorry for my delay.

I've made another test:

c02fd2997681cd82b26c3094d14640d0

Q1 and Q2 have "ignore filter" ON

If I try to filter by tag "to do" hiding other topics, this is the result:

5d99146bde617c7ab2f365d558cc05de


Task with correct tag are only selected, but other tasks are not hidden

If I choose to hide filtered items:

1a61fb7a617bcb0a8cc74a8ba8c2170d

it works:

If I remove "Ignore filter" from Q1 and Q2, it works:

Is there a reason to use "Ignore filter" on the (untagged) topics Q1 and Q2?

Yes.

For example, I use a roadmap with month topic and some milestone related to several projects below them.

If I filter by prj, I'd like to have all month available so that I can move milestone from a month to an other one.

But it happens only if month topics ignore filter. But if so, filter on prj do not work....

Ignore filter should act on Topic which applies, not on all branch.
