All MANAdev layered navigation extensions (except our free extension Multiple Select for Layered Navigation (Filters)) share the same approach to configuring layered navigation. In order to access extension settings, pick up MANADEV menu on the left sidebar.

Later on you can customize certain settings for each filter. Individual filter configuration can be adjusted in Filter Settings menu.
