What's the best way you would suggest if I use a dimension "Page" and would like to filter data against some specific pages not the one only as it is right now in a "Filter" option?

Another option is to manually drag/drop the pages from the left-panel into your table. Like this:

Find the Pages you want to analyze:

Drag the first one into your table. After you find the next Page, drag the value onto the column header of your table:

This way, I'm able to focus on only the 3 Pages I want to analyze in my table, without having to worry about applying filters:

Yes sure. In FreeForm table if I drag a dimension "Page" (there are more than thousands pages) against metric "Visits" but I want to see data against some specific pages (lets say 10 pages out of 1000). Right now there display a "Filter" icon (option) where we drag dimension in FreeForm table. That filter option doesn't meet my requirement. For example if my page name is "abc:individual:category 349:" and I use this filter it would display every page who contain this name but not only a single or multiple pages I want to see in the results like this one only "abc:individual:category 349:" or the ones I want to see. Otherwise I have to find each page manually and select them each by pressing CTRL+ Left Click.
