Bug in smart Collection when filtering for a City/Town with a prefix similar to >  St. NameofTown

LRC down not react when a Name or Cityname contains a > . < and or a > space<

Example St. Moritz

a temporary workaround: Filter only works if I omit the > . < to get StMoritz and I have to add this Keyword to all my pictures containing St. Moritz + StMoritz

otherwise LRC shows just anything

see various screenshots keywords on left and in filter

so all geographical names starting with a St. (Saint) cannot be filtered by LRC

hope programmers acknowledge this bug and fix it soon.

thanks and regards out of Switzerland

I'm not entirely clear about the problem you're describing.  But you may not be aware that "Keywords Contain All x y" will match a keyword if it contains both the string x and the string y anywhere within its name, whereas "Keywords Contain Words x y" will match a keyword only if it contains the word x and the word y, not necessarily in that order (where a "word" is separated by spaces).  


For example, suppose you have photos with four keywords, "st. moritz", "st.moritz", "st moritz", and "stmoritz".  Here's how Contains All and Contains Word work:

"Contain All st moritz" will also match "moritz best beer".

"Contain Words st moritz" will also match "down moritz st".

 

This is how the LR matching operators are designed. If you want them to do something different, why don't you provide more detail about precisely what you're trying to accomplish (with examples).

thank you so much John for your explanation in this matter.

the difficulty is the understanding of your text:

quote *****

But you may not be aware that "Keywords Contain All x y" will match a keyword if it contains both the string x and the string y anywhere within its name, whereas "Keywords Contain Words x y" will match a keyword only if it contains the word x and the word y, not necessarily in that order (where a "word" is separated by spaces)

unquote ****

I modified to contains words and it worked with st. moritz so far well see 2 screenshots total 228 images

but

what I do not understand at all is 

if I use CONTAINS ALL > Team St. Moritz screenshot 3

I get pictures with other Keywords as well like this > Players Presentation, Snow Polo World Cup St.Moritz 2020, Team Badrutt's Palace Hotel, Team Captain Melissa Ganzi < total of 707 images screenshot 4

Team St. Moritz pictures are among all these 707 images

----

please excuse my ignorance but I do not understand why all other images are filtered as well.

anyhow thanks for your explanation in first answer

best regards out of switzerland

From your screenshots, the smart collection rules are:

johnrellis_0-1639160609501.png

 

You're wondering why those rules match a photo with these keywords:

johnrellis_1-1639160660118.png

 

"Contains All Snow Polo World Cup St.Moritz 2020" matches, because the Keywords contain that exact string.

 

But "Contains All Team St. Moritz" also matches, because the Keywords field contains "Team", it contains "St.", and it contains "Moritz":

johnrellis_2-1639161051505.png

 

In this case, if you changed Contains All to Contains Words, it would no longer match that photo, because the Keywords contain the word "Team" but not the word "St." or the word "Moritz" (they contain the single word "St.Moritz").
