Filters created from search box don't get added to recent filters list.
Do exactly as follows. It is specific to the Plot Data Over Time filter.
- Delete your configuration files.
- Run ParaView. Close the Beginners Guide.
- File/ Open. can.exo. Apply.
- ctrl - space. (The stupid bug tracker modified the way I put this in the bug. Drat.) You now have the filter finder up. Type "plot data", arrow down to Plot Data Over Time, Enter. Yes. Apply.
This was the step where you and I were doing different things, I bet.
- Now, filters/ Recent.
