PBIRS Filter Confusion when using Top N

This may have existed before the August Update but thought I would post nonetheless.


The confusion exists when using the Top/Bottom N option when filtering a table.


If I filter a Table using the Top N option, when you click on Filter this information shows up as you would expect in that it clearly shows the Dataset is Filtered by Top 10




However this is not easily noticeable when using Bottom N


If you use the Bottom N option this filter option is not displayed by default and the User has to navigate down through the options on the screen


Step 1 - Display Filters

Step 2 - Expand out Field you know has the Bottom N configured

Step 3 - Change as needed

Ideally Bottom N should be displaying by Default in the Filter similar to how Top N does.


If this is something I have done incorrectly, I would appreciate instructions on how to resovle.
