Variable table "Filter feature list" behavior changed?

I might be crazy but i thought when you used the "Filter feature list" from the variable table it used to show just the features that used that variable.
I tried it today and it just shows the "variable" feature only, which seems pretty useless...

Anyone else remember the "old" behavior or did I dream that up?

    Are you thinking of RMB on a variable to show dependencies?

    I had the same experience recently, and I just shrugged it off because I was in the middle of something, but this reminded me. I'd also love to be able to right click a part and filter for it, since it's possible to filter for parts, but that's a separate topic.

    I am aware of the dependency list but I swear the "filter feature list" from the table used to isolate the things that cross-highlight when you mouse over in the tree (which would make a lot more sense) but I wanted to check here to see if I was just making it up!

    If this doesn't get "picked up" by Onshape support from this thread I'll submit a ticket...

    I just checked and got the same result.
    The only thing it seems to be useful for is finding the variable if it's well down through a very busy feature list. Useful if you're want to move it in the feature tree since setting var can be done in the list.
