Description

If I take a layer that has 458 features intially, symbolized using Categorized renderer by CompleteStreetName (so each has a random color assigned), the layer list will show all features in the panel when expanded (as expected).

If I turn on count features, it'll show me 458 features next to the Layer name, and a [1] next to each feature under the Layer's name (as expected).

However, if I put a filter on this same layer that reduces the number of features to 24, the layer will still show all 458 originally classified features, each with their current [1] count. I do not expect this. I would expect the filtered features to also be similarly filtered out of the layer symbology/legend/count.

This is not a bug this is normal. My feature in review will solve this, if used properly.

The feature count is the count of feature for a given symbol, the legend filter filters out symbols that are not visible. They do not interact and some people might need to have the total count for a given symbol even when out of scope.

I'm talking about the Filter for the data provider/layer (as pictured in the attached screenshot). If that filter is set, those features are no longer available to query, select, or do any operations on. The absolutely 100% should be filtered out of the layer's legend's symbology and the counts should reflect this.
