When searching through photos, you may find that you regularly want to search for a specific thing, but then toggle it on and off.

I built a preset to show just RAW images, like this:

My custom preset shows just RAW images

Once the preset is loaded, File > Library Filters > Enable Filters [⌘L] will toggle the view off and on.

As you hit it, it turns the filtering on and off, remembering what you last had it set to. You can do this to filter by star rating, for example, as well.
