1. Take a screenshot of what you see on the idea/project filter view. 
Just to remember the fields on the filter and their labels. 
2. Go to admin > Studio > Views 
3. Filter by object name idea and category filter. Do the same for the project object filter view.
4. You will get one record unless you use partitions where you might have more than one. 
5. Select the checkbox and click on restore defaults. 
6. You will notice that the filter view has changed.  
7. You will need to reconfigure the filter view as desired afterwards. Here the initial screenshot will help you setting the view as it was
