Search defaults to OR instead of AND?

Use case or problem

When I search, the more words I include, the more files come up, indicating that the search is defaulting to OR. Expected according to the docs is AND behavior (ever fewer docs with each word entered)

So, this isn’t happening: " meeting work returns files that contain both meeting and work" - From docs here: Search - Obsidian Help.

  • It instead returns files containing EITHER meeting OR work.

Proposed solution

Match behavior to documentation

Current workaround (optional)

I don’t really know my way around REGEX…not sure if it would work the way I want anyway… (since what I want is exactly the docs)


Search default to AND. You are confused by how results are counted (over filenames and content and by block)
