Hello to all you queen's our there:)

Photographer from Canada here, nice to meet you under low stress circumstances. I'm having a minor problem (that I'm too silly to figure out), and someone on reddit suggest I bring it up here as you people are in the know.

So my problem is, I've exported files from lightroom to Fundy. From fundy I exported a list and pasted into lightroom to search for these files and tag them. These are the ones in my fundy album. Here's a longer version of how that's supposed to work Feature - Copy List of Photos for Lightroom - Fundy Designer

A few more detials can be found here https://www.reddit.com/r/Lightroom/comments/937dqw
But in a nutshell when I paste the file names into lightroom and select Filename | Contains and search, lightroom does ....nothing.

I feel like I've solved this problem before but now nothing is working. I've tried removing the spaces, searching in a collection or original folder. Nothing. Any idea what I am doing wrong?
