Segment Combinations Revisited

Hello Stan,

SEGMENTS: Besides Segment repeats from previous draw at the same level, I would like to control what segments and how many of them will appear in next draw, as well as how many of them can be repeated in more than one levels.
EXAMPLE: Segment 2-2-1, I would like to have the option choose how many times the segment appears across the 11 levels by setting min-max value for each segment I select to include in the filter: e.g. min-max0-0 and up to 11-11 (for 11 levels). Result would look similar to number groups distribution/repeats. Example: 3-2-2-2-1-1 which translates to: Segment 3-1-1 repeats in three levels, Segment 1-2-2 repeats in two levels, Segment 4-1-0 repeats in two levels, Segment 3-0-2 repeats in two levels, Segment 1-3-1 is single and appears in one level, Segment 4-0-1 is single and appears in one level resulting to ‘segment combination’: 3-2-2-2-1-1
I did a manual visual research in the 24 draws of my lottery (5 of 45) and collected some interesting results: Some of these 'segment combinations’ appear frequently approximately every 2-5 draws. Using one or more of them in a filter can significantly reduce a full wheel and keep the jackpot.
I have built a complex filter using all segments available in my lottery targeting the ‘segment combination’ (see above example), and although the full wheel was considerably reduced, an analysis of the resulting package for segment combinations shows me my complex filter does not work exactly the way I wanted it to. In other words besides my target segment combination 3-2-2-2-1-1, resulting package includes other ‘segment combinations’ as well, thus increasing the ticket lines. I tried several times but could not get the result I want which is only ‘segment combination’ 3-2-2-2-1-1.
I am not sure what I did wrong in my complex filter. Therefore I would like to ask if such a feature does exist in current LE version or if it could be implemented in a future version as it seems to be of great help in safe package reduction.

Update on my post: I got it sorted out. I rebuilt the complex filter, changed settings and it works fine so far; however it would be helpful if this feature could be added in Lotto Expert.
