I have made this filter snippet as an alternative to the number slider that is the only way to show blend modes in a filter and I find bad that you canĀ“t see the NAMES of the blend mode instead of a number.Also a good and useful thing about this way, is that you can choose wich ones you want to put in the filter, and in in wich order you want them, something impossible in the default slider way. So if you test the blend modes with your filter and for example only 6 of the blend modes work right and others do not work well or give unwanted results, you can put only these 6, and does not matter if they are continuos in the list or not as it happens with the slider way.Since long time ago has been requested to have a drop down menu for selecting blend modes, but 5 years after there is no news that this will be included in FF 4.0 so I have thought to make an alternative way using checkboxes with NAMES instead of numbersThanks to Sphinx for solving the multiblend problem
