I would like to create a smart collection which selects papers with given sets of keywords. I would like to express the condition

(A and B) or (A and C) or (A and D)

but there is no way to do this - I tried to select the condition “any” and put “A B”, “A C” and “A D” but it retrieves papers containing any of the keywords A B C or D.

Could there be a way to do such a thing?

    Hi Benjamin,

    I don't think there is a way of doing this currently, no.

    Best wishes,

    So would it be possible to add this possibility (or even better: structured queries). I was relying on keywords to dynamically add collections with smart searches, but this limit is quite annoying.

    Apologies for the delay in getting back with you.

    I have passed it along to our development team for their consideration for a future update.

    Best Wishes,
