I tried searching for the string "worth it" and got 502 results.

I then did a search for "worth it" OR "worth the" and got 64 results.

That is not how the disjunctive operator is supposed to work.  The results should have increased.

An AND search gave me 63 results so it is slightly different but an OR search should have got me somewhere north of 502.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks!

The problem is the New Search Engine (default) and All Text. If you use Surface Text, you get the expected results. Alternatively, use the command Set Use New Search Engine to No.
