use table filter with icons

We would like to use the table filter in tables that has content like:


(Btw, the table itself does not work inside that box ...)

But when I include a table like that in the table-filter macro, I cannot filter by tick, independent of column or user filtered. Is there a way to filter for special characters? I have checked some strange things like searching for the HTML or using the source editor format name "tick" here, but nothing worked.

Hello, Markus.

Unfortunately, the add-on does not support emoticons. Could you please be so kind to submit your idea to our feedback forum at

If enough people vote for it, we will put it to development.

Hello Markus,

Starting from Table Filter 3.5.0 there is an Icon Filter type that allows you to filter by images, icons and emoticons.
