Error description

  • When a user Highlights a portion of their query results and
    right clicks and Select "Create Query from Selection" the query
    that is generated includes any filters that they have setup for
    new default queries.
    
    Which usually means the query returns no results and if very
    misleading. New queries created via the "Create Query from
    Selection" option should NOT include default filters for new
    queries.
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    
    1. Use an existing query and set the "Use these filters as the
    default for new queries" to use the filters you have in that
    query.
    
    2. Save this query.
    
    3. Run a another already existing query.
    
    4. From the query results screen, select some records, right
    click and use the "Create Query from Selection" option.
    
    5. It will not return any records and if any, probably it will
    be
    a wrong number of records.
    
    6. Look at the new query definition that was created using the
    "Create Query from Selection" option and check about the
    filters. You will see that was included any filters that you
    have setup for new default queries.
    
    Workaround: If you remove the filter(s) added by the setup you
    did for the new queries default filter and run the new query
    again, it will run correctly.
