is there any way how to use Display Filter in Trados Studio with more conditions together?

For example, one can display all untranslated segments and can also display all locked segments. But I need to display only untranslated segments that are locked. It's basically using "Not translated" and "Locked" filters at the same time.
Is there any way how to do that? Something similar to Idiom?

Many thanks in advance

Missing feature May 14, 2013

AFAIK, it's not possible and it's definitely a feature I miss too.

I'd often like to search for locked and numbers-only, but I can't.
I'd also like to be able to filter for a word in the source and another one in the target, but I can't.

MemSource does this, but Studio doesn't.icon_frown.gif

Edited to add:
I know it doesn't help your original question, but just by chance I came across a blog post by Tuomas Kostiainen about filtering for different words in source and target:
I hadn't thought of this workaround - it's a great idea.
