iOS Smart Groups OR Function and ALL FIELDS

Post by med » Sun May 26, 2019 12:45 am

Is there a way to have an 'OR' function for creating smart groups in iOS, similar to Mac?

For instance, I want to create a group where the keywords 'network' OR 'connectivity' appears. However, if I add another criteria, it seems iOS treats it as an AND function, and thus no references are put into the smart group.

Furthermore, is there a way to add "All Fields' to a smart group criteria? For instance, I want to pull any papers that mention 'synchronizability' in anywhere in the Title, Abstract, Keywords, etc. (basically an OR + OR + OR + ... of all the fields, so I'd be willing to create an All Fields hack using an OR function if All Fields does not exist)

Currently search abilities in Bookends for iOS are limited, and they can be improved, but it’s a huge topic we want to return to after other smaller features will be implemented.
