Global inbox invisible documents

My Global Inbox says that it has 17 items, but only shows 3. The 17 shows up in the sidebar, but there are only 3 items visible to me. Why might this be?

Is the number still wrong after restarting the application?

Yes, and after rebooting, and after running verify and repair.
This anomaly has been so for the past week or so.

It’s not that troublesome, but I wondered if there wasn’t some sort of system for making some documents invisible that I could uncheck, or something.


Could you send a screenshot to cgrunenberg - at - And are the 3 items groups/feeds and do they contain additional items?

I sent that screenshot, and for the benefit of anyone reading, the answer is that groups within the inbox are counted, along with any items within those groups. I hadn’t thought of that, but it makes a kind of sense.
