"@Collection[Pins]" works not like in the helpfile

In the helpfile is written:

This keyword returns all files in the given collection. Having the ability to use collections in category formulas opens up all kinds of interesting possibilities.


"@Collection[Pins]"This formula returns all files with at least one pin.

"@Collection[Dot.Red]"This formula returns all files with a red dot.

But "@Collection[Pins]" gives no images, though I have images with pins.

And "@Collection[Dot.Red]" works not, but it works if I use the formulas editor, what gives me "@Collection[Dots|Red]"

This is really not important, I can find all pins also with
"@Collection[Pins|Green]" OR "@Collection[Pins|Red]" OR "@Collection[Pins|Blue]"

Wanted only to mention, because in the help it is written not exactly like this.

For this time, you don't need to email me. I've already corrected the help. The correct separator is | not . and to get all files with at least one pin, we of course need to use

"@Collection[Pins|Red]" OR "@Collection[Pins|Green]" OR "@Collection[Pins|Blue]"

OK, Thanks, Mario.

I thought finally, it is simply a small glitch, not a helpfile-issue, because the formula


simply does not work.

But ok, I will try to do, as you pointed out, use the feedback link of the helpfile.
