Set cross-filtering between visuals

Is there a way to set ineraction filters between visuals by using a seperate window or some other selection tool? I know the "normal" way by doing is by selection the visual. Then by hovering over other visuals two buttons appear where you can select filter or no filter.


I find this extremely frustrating as I have multiple visuals close to each other (card indicators and visuals):

- First it is hard to see what pop up buttons actually belong to which visual.

- Sometimes these pop up buttons are hidden behind other visuals.

- Last, by hovering over an extra buttons appears.  This makes the filter or no filter button to move to the left. This results I'm often clicking wrong.


If you just multiple sheets and multiple visuals, it is not very user friendly to be able to determine crossfiltering this way. I doubt I am the only one with this problem, but I can't find a good way to overcome this. Any ideas?


Thanks in advance.
