Page List - Custom Topic Filter

We are trying to figure out how we can display a Page List block and filter it down to any stories that have a value for a Topic.

We have a Topic Tree (Technology) that has 4 Topics in it, we would like to show pages that have ANY of those 4 topics selected. It seems logical that checking the box next to “Categories” would do this, but it doesn’t seem to do anything.

Has anybody achieved this?
Does anybody know what the checkbox next to “Categories” does, if anything?

in my experience, that’s the only place where there’s a checkbox next to a “folder”, and yes, it seems to do nothing. As for alleviating and making things work better like you describe, there are github issues open on this matter…

Edit: I’ve pm’d you…
