Summary0006382: Add a NOT switch to filter settings

It would be great to have a NOT switch in some of the filter settings. For example:

Versions, we have 5.98, 6.0, 6.1, 6.2, 6.3 etc

I would like to filter for any version that is not 5.98. In the current state its impossible to do this. Everytime we add a new version i need to delete the custom filter and resave it with the extra version number selected. (Also its annoying that you cant edit a filter, you can only add and delete).

The same applies to category, we have several bug categories and then a "Test Script" category, which isnt a bug at all, its a script which needs to be run to test a feature of our application. So it would be good to look at all issues which arent test scripts.

You can do this with the "Advanced" filter. This changes the dropdowns into multi-select lists. You can then select all but the one you want.

Yes, but that way it still requires updating for every new version that i add. Ive been trying to create a "Version 6" filter, which automatically ignores the 5.98 version. But both the simple and advanced ways require you to update the filter everytime a new version has been added (and as mentioned previously its difficult to "edit" a filter as you have to delete and recreate from scratch).

This applies to relationships too. I have many times wanted to do a filter like: "All non-resolved bugs that is NOT a child of NNN"

One of the biggest requests from my users. A NOT filter is most often requested for relationships, versions (target & product) and users (reporters & handlers). Anyone have any ideas on how it might be coded?
