Create an interactive filter for a "People" type of field doesn't seem to work

Hi there :blush: !

I stumble upon a strange Coda behavior when trying to create an interactive filter to use on a People type of field.

For some reasons I don’t understand, it seems that it’s not possible to create such a filter just by :

  1. Right-Click on the People field
  2. In the menu, go to Filter
  3. In Filter go to Interactive Filter
  4. In Interactive filter click on Create control

The control (a canvas Select control, most likely) is just not created :thinking: .
(Tested this on Chrome Version 87.0.4280.141 (Build officiel))

It also doesn’t work if you try to create an interactive filter from the Table Filter Options
(also tested on Chrome Version 87.0.4280.141 (Build officiel))

But it works the other way around : creating a canvas Select control, in the selectable items just add a formula to get the people from the table ([Table].People.Unique()) and use this control as an interactive filter.

As there is still a possibility to create an interactive filter for People fields, it’s not that important but it’s a little bit confusing :thinking: .

I can confirm same behavior, on both Chrome and Edge on Windows 10
