Is there a reason that the knob mode for filters (High/Low and Center/Width) are not specific to operating mode?

It would seem that in SSB the mode it should default to High/Low and in CW default to Center/Width.

I can be operating CW using Center/Width mode and when I drop back to SSB and go to change filter it gets all jacked up because I did not change the knob modes back. 

Maybe my operating methods are different/wrong but seems the knob mode should follow the actual operating mode.

It is just the way that it is implemented today -- you can choose either option (high/low cut vs center/width adjustments) in any mode.  We could certainly change this if there is overwhelming support to make it follow the mode selection.
