I am getting inconsistent behavior in my smart groups when I do a search for “matches” a term and “begins with” a term. When I use the former, I can see a list of the items in the smart group in both the sidebar and the listview. When I use the latter, I can only see the items in the smart group in the list view.
I search for “matches” name1 in tags named name1.thing, etc.:
I can see the results in both the sidebar and the listview:
Now I change the search to use ‘begins with’ name1, which should match the same groups:
I see the same items in the listview, but can no longer see the items in the sidebar:
There is no arrow next to the smart group in the sidebar that I use to see the contents. Why is this? Is there any way to arrange the search so that I can use ‘begins with’ and still see the items in the sidebar? I want exclude items that don’t start with my terms, but I can’t seem to do that without giving up the sidebar view, and I typically use ‘show only documents’ in the listview. The smart group is clearly finding the same groups because they show up in the listview.
Thanks in advance.
