On Filter Use Search Term Report does not work anymore

Hi there!

 

I am having a problem with my search term Report in Google Analytics as soon as I apply filters on my view. 

 

I've applied the following filter 

custom > include > country > Switzerland|Austria|Germany|United Kingdom|Netherlands|France

 

After applying this filter to my view no search terms are showing up anymore. Does anybody have a suggestion why it is like that?

If you applied a 'view filter' then this filter is applied to everything, not just that report. So the problem should also appear in the rest of your reports as well.

Yeah you are right, that would be an expected behaviour if I would have cut a lot of sessions with my filter. But unfortunetely I didn't - the sessioncount per day after applying the country-filter remains almost the same:

You may have any further suggestions??
