I've updated tshark to actual version, i.e. 1.12. Unfortunately, in this version field filter -e expert is not working. (process:31133): WARNING : 'expert' isn't a valid field! tshark: Some fields aren't valid

How to resolve this issue?

Many thanks in advance!

Starting with Wireshark 1.12, you need to specify, -e The _ws. prefix was added to make it clear that this is a Wireshark-generated field and not an actual field that's part of any particular protocol.
