Highlight that applied Filename filters are used

Description

I suggest you should add some sort of highlighting, indicating that a "Filename filters"/"Directory listing filters" are used in the view.

For instance the frame around the remote directory listing could have a red/orange colored line in the frame or a slightly modified background with large grey text saying that a filter is used, or just a striped background.

I forgot that I had a filter and started to investigate why I couldn't find the files on the remote server, then I realized I had applied a filter matching that file I was looking for. :-)

I also assume there might be other scenarios where applied settings might be good to highlight in the UI.

Replying to codesquid:

The number of filtered out items is mentioned in the filelist status bar.

Sorry for opening the case again. I was actually not aware of that indicator, even if I daily use some other features visible in the status bar and I have been a user for a decade. I will start looking more at the status bar.

But I still think you should later on consider to highlight it even a bit more. Most preferably a deviating striped hatched background pattern and text for applied filters. Many of the other features in the status bar that i use daily, like Synchronized browsing and Directory comparison are both very clearly noticeable in the actual directory frame of the UI, but the filters are not that.
