Let's assume you want to add a new filter US Partners to the Search View:
You do that via an inherited view, using XML, instead of via 'Save current filter'. Here is how you use XML to change a search view in a way that inherits and overrides the base view, so that during upgrades your changes will persist.
Activate Developer Mode
Navigate to the Screen where you want to add a filter. In this example, Sales --> Customers.
From the "Debug View#" dropdown, select "Edit Search View". Take note of the View Name. In this example, it is res.partner.select
Navigate to Settings --> Technical --> User Interface --> Views
Search for res.partner.select
Open the view, and from the More menu, select "Duplicate". We are creating a copy of the view, because the view we want to create just for the addition has most of the same properties.
Change the View Name, appending 'custom' to the name. Click Save. Click Edit. Note if you don't click Save then Edit in here you will see TWO res.partner.select views in the next step.
Change the View inheritance mode to Extension View and the Inherited View to res.partner.select.
The last part is to anchor your change to an existing filter in the view. In this example, I want a filter for US Partners (country = USA) after the My Partners filter.
In the Architecture tab, enter:
<filter help="My Partners" position="after">
<filter help="US Partners" domain="['country_id','=','United States']"/>
When it is all done, it should look like:
