Selection filter state overridden in Feature dialogue.

    If my choice is the Edges only Filter, when I want to add, say, a Fillet, the Filter state defaults to Faces & Edges. Ok, I can see why that might be justified. So, I choose the Edges filter again and I can make my first selection, fair enough so far. Oh! the Filter has defaulted to Faces and Edges again. So, every selection I make in that Feature dialogue, I have to toggle the Selection Filter first? What?

    I've found a workaround for this annoyance...... Using the example above:

    - Set a keyboard shortcut for Select Edges.
    - Open the Fillet dialogue
    - Choose Select Edges from the toolbar (No, it won't work from your shortcut yet!)
    - Now, you can press and hold down your keyboard shortcut for Edges and select as many Edges as you like. Yay!

    While setting the Keyboard Shortcut above, I discovered that the Shortcut entries for the Select options are duplicated. The first set of entries didn't appear to work...........
