When adding items (e.g. an operation) to an object with filtered compartments on a diagram, the new item should not show up on other diagrams with the same object and filtered compartments

If a model uses an object (e.g. a database) on a diagram, and that object has many compartments/operations etc, typically if a compartment/operation is not pertinent to the model it is filtered out and not displayed on the diagram. If that same object is used in another model on a different diagram and a new operation is needed, it is added to the object and displayed on the diagram. However, when you return to the original model it will be displayed on its diagram even though it is not pertinent for that model and the user must filter it off that original diagram manually. Currently when filtering there is only show or hide options and the default is show. Suggestion is to have a 3rd option/method, say "show only" when filtering compartment items on a diagram. If this option is used, when filtering the compartment, only those items would be shown on the diagram regardless if new items are added semantically to the object for another model.
