Hi!

I have good knowledge of the base modifiers but my question is what is happening when you combine the modifiers as the picture below i created. I really don't understand the difference between the first three keywords and the last three keywords.

They are not allowed. Though, technically, you can type  them in, the system  considers it as only one match type and ignores the other. This could  end with unexpected results / clicks. Follow the match type structure explained in the help article.

The shouldn't be allowed BUT they are somehow. But for example the ["This Keyword"] are not allowed..That's the strange part

Hi @James_Clemens !

Thank for your answer but that doesn't help me at all with my question. 

For example, as @MosheTLV said the last and second keyword combination should not be allowed, but they are.
