AND and OR searches not working

Hi,

In Spotlight-based search, AND and OR searches aren't working. They don't return anything..... UPDATE> I sort of solved my own issue. Turns out search requires a comma delimited list of search terms. While I hesitate to generalize and say that the majority of people in the whole world would expect spaces to work there..... the majority of people in the whole world would expect spaces to work there. :-)

A little legend that says "Separate values with commas", or however one communicates "comma delimited list" to rank and file users, might be a good idea.

There may be other places in Photo Mechanic where the same applies. I can't think of one off the top of my head, which isn't a terribly exact statement, I realize. Keywords? But spaces seem to work in keywords. (But how? Why? Given that multi-word keywords are allowed.)

Cheers.
