Hi !

Currently, one can choose between having the attribute table "show all features", "show selected features" or "show visible features".

IMO, the most convenient behavior would be to display the selection only if there is a selection, and all attributes if there is no selection.

So I'd suggest adding this option, and even make it the default behavior.

Thanks !!

Sounds like a good idea.

It would also be possible to add this to the current "show selected" in case the selected feature count is 0 and show a red warning next to the filter button. This way there would be no need for yet another option in this menu.

This most probably will have to wait for 2.1 as we're in feature freeze. Unfortunately, there has not been much time to review the new attribute table before feature freeze.
