Is this a bug, or a limitation of search?

My search string is easy: "deck:02. Japanese Sentence Fast Track" OR "deck:03. Japanese Grab Bag Sentences"

Both of these decks have cards. When I search for this, however, no cards come up. Any idea why this is? Not sure if I’m missing something obvious about how search works, esp with the boolean operators (highly possible!). My expectation though would be that OR gives a union of results?

Maybe they are subdecks? You can also try clicking the decks in the sidebar while holding shift, which should create the query for you.


they are not subdecks. I tried the shift trick, and it made the query, but nothing came up. I’m wondering if it’s an issue with the . or spaces in the names of the decks?

The search string works for me. Maybe you have an add-on that is breaking things.
