This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom: Filter images in a collapsed stack

I think this is a bug in LR 4.3:

Create a virtual copy. Flag the copy. Collapse the stack. Filter by attribute=flagged. The flagged copy is not displayed. Uncollapse all stacks. The flagged copy is displayed.

The flagged copy (and only the flagged copy) should be visible in the filtered view, whether or not the stack is collapsed.

This is long-standing behavior of LR, so I assume it is intended by the LR developers. Filtering always shows a subset of what's currently visible -- if a stack is collapsed, then filtering will either show the top of the stack or nothing at all.

Then please take this as an enhancement request. This behavior should be user-configurable. It's counter-intuitive to me.
