Sometimes if you have the chat on it will only display a few labels to make room for the chat options. Click on chat options (the gray arrow next to chat) and turn it off and now you will be able to see all the labels.


For me the best solution is to make two identical filters, one for each label: One that applies the parent label Another that applies the nested label


Surprisingly we have it as built-in in Gmail Label Setting


After encountering the same problem, encountering your thread, and leaving sad, a hack just occured to me. Manual muting: What if we make a tag "MUTED" and add it to conversations we no longer want to follow. Then, when you check your email, you open the muted tag, click more->"Mark all as read". Then the rest of your tags are now cleaned.
