In the "Map" tools, filter by Continent?

In all the "Map X" tools eg Map Hidden Month, can we have a filter for Continent, ie Europe, Africa, Asia, America (N&S), Middle East ?

This is particularly useful as I can see where I need to go in Europe, to find the elusive hidden month or DT I need which might be a short plane journey away.

I know it benefits Europe more than anywhere else in the world, but I think everyone could get use out of it. I often filter by the whole world and remove some of the bigger countries (eg America and Australia, New Zealand) but its still messy. If I could just see European countries, it'd be awesome :)

They could even be listed at the top of the country selection field when it is set to multiple filtering or something if you wanted to keep it simple.

These tools already have the Center/Radius filter, which should solve your problem.

Yes, except, that still gives me caches in other continents and requires knowing coordinates as a centre point. It would be much simpler to have the option to filter by Continent
Europe has continental neighbors to the east and south but large oceans to the north and weary.  Pending this feature being added, try shifting your center point to the northwest and adjusting your radius.
