It is very easy to add filters and name them in the "Capture Filters" window. But I can't see how to select one from here when I start a capture. I have to manually enter a filter in the "Capture/Options" window.

4.4. The “Capture” Section Of The Welcome Screen

Click on the green bookmark symbol next to the left of the capture filter field.

There is mention of the icon shape being for Bookmarks in the display filter section:
3.17. The “Filter” Toolbar

Also see the "Discoverability and feedback." section under 12.2.1. User Experience Considerations

Or did you want to start a capture from the command line?
