Table visual and filters

I think I am one of the many to ask this question.

Is there any, any way I can have a table visual which does not reset all the filters when I click on a row in it.

I have two table visuals, when I click in the first one, the second table visual gets filtered.

When I click on a row in the second table it resets the filter.

Changing the interactions of the visuals does nothing.


Is there any way to prevent this.

Please for the love of everything you hold dear, DO NOT say "use ctrl-click".

Also slicers are not a solution, unless I can select a slicer programmatically based from the selection in first table visual.


A simple yes or no answer to the question would suffice, so I can stop going in circles.

HI @Lexx 


Please press/hold the CTRL button on your keyboard when clicking on the table line-items. Then the filter form the first table should persist.


Best regards
