I agree that the UI isn't great. However IMO, wrapping long filters into multiple linesm, would make it even harder to use with the current design. I hope sven comes up with a smart way to edit filters with the new UI.

  • Priority changed from Unknown to P4

We might be able to use a horizontal scrollbar on the element for that but styling <option> tags is tricky so we may even need to create a custom element for that. Therefore I'm setting the priority to P4.
