    15 Current filters can be removed by clicking the button to the left with the minus sign on the label. New filters are added from the pulldown lists at the bottom corners of the filters box; 'And' conditions on the left, 'Or' conditions on the right.  Filters with either a text box or a pulldown menu of options can be added multiple times to perform an ''Or'' on the criteria.

    3031Trac allows you to save the query as a named query accessible from the reports module. To save a query ensure that you have ''Updated'' the view and then click the ''Save query'' button displayed beneath the results.
    3132You can also save references to queries in Wiki content, as described below.

    35 ''Note:'' you must have the '''REPORT_CREATE''' permission in order to save queries to the list of default reports. The ''Save query'' button will only appear if you are logged in as a user that has been granted this permission. If your account does not have permission to create reports, you can still use the methods below to save a query.

    3940You may want to save some queries so that you can come back to them later. You can do this by making a link to the query from any Wiki page.

    57 === Using the `[[TicketQuery]]` Macro ===
     58=== Customizing the ''table'' format
    5859
    59 The [trac:TicketQuery TicketQuery] macro lets you display lists of tickets matching certain criteria anywhere you can use WikiFormatting.
    60 
    61 Example:
    62 {{{
    63 [[TicketQuery(version=0.6|0.7&resolution=duplicate)]]
    64 }}}
    65 
    66 This is displayed as:
    67   [[TicketQuery(version=0.6|0.7&resolution=duplicate)]]
    68 
    69 Just like the [wiki:TracQuery#UsingTracLinks query: wiki links], the parameter of this macro expects a query string formatted according to the rules of the simple [wiki:TracQuery#QueryLanguage ticket query language]. This also displays the link and description of a single ticket:
    70 {{{
    71 [[TicketQuery(id=123)]]
    72 }}}
    73 
    74 This is displayed as:
    75   [[TicketQuery(id=123)]]
    76 
    77 A more compact representation without the ticket summaries is:
    78 {{{
    79 [[TicketQuery(version=0.6|0.7&resolution=duplicate, compact)]]
    80 }}}
    81 
    82 This is displayed as:
    83   [[TicketQuery(version=0.6|0.7&resolution=duplicate, compact)]]
    84 
    85 Finally, if you wish to receive only the number of defects that match the query, use the `count` parameter:
    86 {{{
    87 [[TicketQuery(version=0.6|0.7&resolution=duplicate, count)]]
    88 }}}
    89 
    90 This is displayed as:
    91   [[TicketQuery(version=0.6|0.7&resolution=duplicate, count)]]
    92 
    93 === Customizing the ''table'' format ===
    9460You can also customize the columns displayed in the table format (''format=table'') by using ''col=<field>''. You can specify multiple fields and what order they are displayed in by placing pipes (`|`) between the columns:
    9561{{{
     
    10066[[TicketQuery(max=3,status=closed,order=id,desc=1,format=table,col=resolution|summary|owner|reporter)]]
    10167
    102 ==== Full rows ====
     68==== Full rows
     69
    10370In ''table'' format you can also have full rows by using ''rows=<field>'':
    10471{{{
     
    10976[[TicketQuery(max=3,status=closed,order=id,desc=1,format=table,col=resolution|summary|owner|reporter,rows=description)]]
    11077
    111 === Query Language ===
     78== Query Language
    11279
    11380`query:` TracLinks and the `[[TicketQuery]]` macro both use a mini “query language” for specifying query filters. Filters are separated by ampersands (`&`). Each filter consists of the ticket field name, an operator and one or more values. More than one value are separated by a pipe (`|`), meaning that the filter matches any of the values. To include a literal `&` or `|` in a value, escape the character with a backslash (`\`).
