Unfortunately, I can't seem to make it work; I typed "boundary:administrative" and "boundary=administrative" into the filter box, but am obviously doing it wrong...and the relevant part of the documentation says "see below" and has a "TODO:Where below?" comment on it. I'm willing to fix it, but I don't know how the filtering works to begin with.

Adding a rule by default makes that object(s) non-selectable, it goes
a blackish colour and you just can't click on it, if you want to hide
the object(s) completely you need to tick the box under the 'H' (for
hide) column.

The filtering uses the same method to find objects as the find box, so
try ctrl+f and searching for various objects first to see what may
become hidden, also it's boundary=administrative
