Would it be too much trouble to have the deflater filter out unwanted digits? 

Currently, I check only the key digits that I want to show; however, there are still numbers included that I did not have checked off & was trying to filter out.

    I asked Todd some time back about that.  I'm sure he has it on his "to-do" list.  I like to play key numbers also, but don't want the combos to contain more than one of those key numbers. It would be great and save us a lot of time!

      So you want the ability to change the Key Number filter to a Key Number Exclude filter?

      For example, if you check the number 3, it would eliminate any combo containing a 3, as opposed to the current Key Number filter, which includes any combos with that number checked.

      If that's the case, I can either add a checkbox that switches the behavior of the Key Number filter, or I can add a separate row of checkboxes specifcally for a Key Number Exclude filter.  I guess it would depend upon if you would ever use both of them together.

      I can't think of any situation where you would use both together, so I would be inclined to just create the checkbox that changes the behavior of the Key Number filter.  What do you think?

        The exclude would be a neat feature, but what I had in mind was more like an exclusive Include.  In other words, I have noticed with Pick 3 and Pick 4 that many times ONE of the previous draw's digits returns, but ONLY one.  So what I was asking for was something that I could select say 2589 in the Key Number section of Deflate 4 and it would give me all the numbers that are in the input field that contain a 2 OR a 5 OR an 8 OR a 9, but no numbers would contain 2 or more of the numbers I selected.

          OK, I understand what you're looking for, thanks for explaining it in detail.

            Todd, I was speaking more to the exclusion of a number like you mentioned above.

              OK, I think both ideas would be fabulous additions to the Deflate 3/4 tools, and I'll add them both the next time I work on them.
