Shopify search and discovery limitaitons

Hello Shopify Community,

I am exploring the functionality of the Shopify Search and Discovery app, particularly in creating distinct categories of filters for my collection pages to enhance user navigation. However, I've hit a snag due to the app's apparent limitation where a source, once used in a filter, cannot be reused in another filter, and selecting relevant tags for each filter has become a challenge.

Here's what I am aiming to accomplish: I want to create a filter with a source set as 'tag', select the relevant tags for that filter, and then create another filter, again with the source as 'tag', but with a different set of tags. However, it seems that once a tag is used in a filter, it can't be used again in a subsequent filter.

This limitation is hindering my ability to fully customize the filtering system on my collection pages as per my preferences. I am wondering if there is a workaround or a feature within the app that I may have overlooked which could enable the reuse of a source, or the selection of relevant tags for each filter.

Your insights and recommendations would be incredibly valuable and appreciated. This functionality could significantly improve the navigability and overall user experience on my site.

Thank you in advance for your assistance and looking forward to your suggestions!
