Edit Projection Filter in Calculation View

I am struggling to see how one manually edits a filter expression.

I open the expression editor, type my expression, but simply cannot get it to save... my text just disappears !

Here's the exact steps of what I am trying....

Open Calculation View
Select desired Projection Node (not the 'default' node next to semantics)

Right-click  Filters>Expression and select 'Open'

I now see a dialog entitled "Edit Filter Expression for Projection 3"

I then click 'Edit'

A message box :  'Enable Manual Editing' - 'Filters can now only be maintained as an expression'

After clicking "OK"  to the above,  I am able to type my expression  into the text box.

However, there is no 'save' button, the only option to exit is the big red "X" top right.

Nothing I type in the expression editor is ever saved !?

I've checked documentation here :

but really can't see what I am missing.

After goggling and searching the scn, I'm just about tearing y hair out as to what the problem is.

Can anyone please help ?

Well after the upgrade, a reboot, and fiddling with resolution.. .nothing improved the situation.

However, restarting the next day - all was fine and the dialogues were displaying correctly.

So I can't honestly say which of the above was the crux, but obviously one of them, or a combo, was the answer.

I just have to live with a smaller font now.
Not ideal, but there we go.
