Missing region / county map not honouring filters

I am not sure this is a bug, but I also don't think I am doing this wrong:

I use the "Map - Region" or "Map - County" to find those we did not have find in yet or to see how many finds in each subdivision.

Seems to work.

I can add a filter "Type: only multi checked" and then have to set "Size: all 7 checked", which is easy to do.

The result however does not change. I would have expected to now only see Multichaches (and a lot more red and smaller numbers). The map and number breakdown does not change though.

Any idea?

You are right. The numbers and the colors should match the filter. If you click on the regions, you are getting already the caches filtered, but before that, it should filter also your finds.

No, that's correct. The filter affects what kinds of caches it will display to help you to fill your missing regions or counties, but it does not limit previous finds to those types.

Ah, that was not obvious to me that it would work like this from the page. I would have thought the previous finds filter would be more useful and interesting than missing fillers after the initial display. I can certainly see how both would be handy.
