There is already a "Titled" checkbox that does this; it's just not in the drop down.

I don't know if this is a "feature" or not - Ke might be one of the many Nights of Reckoning haters - but Amaranth is pretty messed up if you try to use it to build an imbued deck. Beyond not being able to look up any cards, crypt or library, based on specific virtues, the "imbued" option in the clan pulldown of the Library section brings back no results.

Worse, library cards which have a conviction cost don't list that conviction cost, either in the text nor in the card art (the latter is especially odd - did someone manually scrub the conviction costs from the card art?). This means that some NoR proxies printed via Amaranth have incorrect card text, which could well be a problem at a tournament in which people aren't familiar enough with the NoR cards to realize that some of the proxies are incorrect.

The proxies on Amaranth are generated based on Card Text and Images of the Art. They are not scans of actual cards (and have in some cases updated card text, that hasn't been printed yet). The problem with the wrong sidebar seems to be a bug in the code generating the images. It also happens with cards that have burn options, but no Clan or Discipline requirement (e.g. Tattoo Signal).

That said, unfortunately the proxies from Amaranth are not tournament legal. The tournament rules specify explicitly "every proxy card must be a color-copy of the original card, on standard paper". With newer cards this is most often not recognizable, but for example set symbols are missing as well.
