For example, if you're lighting your scene, you won't necessarily want the 673 polygon objects to be displayed. With the filter, you can concentrate on the essentials.

The left side of the filter lists the various types of item present in the scene, arranged as a tree. Under the types you'll find the specific items that exist in the scene, including the number and selected number of each type.
