Blue facet panel   Sometimes there's a blue facet panel at the left side of table. If it's there you can use it to pair down the table content using a facet approach.

'All boxes'.   In tables of phenotype measures, there's an "All boxes" checkbox at the bottom of the table. Checking this box will select all the measures that are currently present in your table (regardless of pagination). Measures that you've already filtered out will not be included. For best results please perform all desired filtering / paring down before using Select All.

'Work with selected measures'.   In tables of phenotype measures, you can use this button (at the bottom of the table) to see options for using the MPD analysis tools with the selected measures, or adding the selected measures to your MyMPD collection.
