I suggest you ...

Separate category selection and other filtering/sorting per viewer

With multiple viewers, give each viewer control over the categories shown.

Other preferences could also be moved to per-view, such as number of days for "due soon", but the category is my main desire.

This is an important request, and I think it goes hand-in-hand with this:

But I think instead of viewers controlling time for “due soon” I prefer the idea of a per-task override for due-soon timing. But that’s a separate issue.

    No, that sounds fine. I just wanted to be sure that the other request including filtering by categories since categories weren't explicitly mentioned. I've been burnt in the past in software development by me making assumptions or other people making assumptions.

    BJ, Please clarify if I am misunderstanding your request.

    The other request refers to "filters" and one of the primary thing that is filtered in general is categories. The request for presets for filters would include all the types of filtering that already exist, just saved in presets. A preset with defined filters could include filtering to show only items that match certain categories. Isn't that what you want?

    Or are you wanting something else? Like to have multiple category viewers where the category list itself is incomplete??

    I'd feel more comfortable about jumping to the other suggestion if the other request mentioned categories, but the word "category" doesn't appear on that page.
