Filter in Browse for "not ok" records

It would be helpful to be able to filter within the results window of a Browse tool for all "Not OK" records (records with leading/trailing spaces, embedded newlines, etc.) I can already filter for null and empty values, but this would be helpful for cleaning up data. I want to see the "dirty" data before taking out leading/trailing spaces or embedded new lines to see if there is something I'm missing in the data that needs to be further parsed or modified.

I was thinking about this last week. The data profiling is great, but it would be even better if was easy to use the insights from the data profiling at the start of your workflow.

I am brand new to Alteryx, and I came here looking for this as well. Something as simple as giving the row #s that contain errors would help as well.
