New MATLAB Answers filtering does not allow multiple selections

1 view (last 30 days)
So apparently MATLAB Answers was updated. It now received a cleaned up frontpage which seems to push people in posting answers, instead of searching for them.
Anyway, the filtering system for browsing through questions seems to be dumbed down, and we cannot select multiple filters.
I want to select 'Answered', 'Unanswered', and also 'Simulink', 'Physical Modeling, 'Event-based Systems', 'Real-Time Simulation and Testing' and 'Code Generation'.
Now only ONE selection is possible:

Hi Jonas,
I have brought this issue to the notice of our developers. They will investigate the matter further.

Today, the category filtering system has been removed completely... All questions are put into one big pile and there is no convenient way of filtering the questions. Asking questions is easy, but how the hell should we answer them? Maybe I am just lost.
Apparently there are categories to questions, but they must be AI-assigned because they make ZERO sense.
How to screw up a perfectly working system and losing active power users of Mathworks products into answering questions of learners. I am not answering questions anymore, better things to do.

"Why does this question have the category ... Valentines Day"
Apparently someone sent the AI some Valentine's cards but are yet to teach it any card games.
"why does my question above have the category "Simulink...""
The AI learned that questions that mention "Simulink" are about Simulink. Ergo, your question must be about Simulink. Somewhat ironically by writing this comment I just reinforced the AI's opinion on the matter :)
Perhaps external Search Engines are an alternative worth trying?:
