How Do I Search for Multiple Words (Terms) using the 1PW URL Scheme?

Although I have a Password Item with the Title of "App Store", this search fails:

    Hi @JMichaelTX,

    Thanks for asking about this. Turns out there's a bug preventing multi-word searches in 1Password mini using its URL handler from working properly because space characters aren't being properly decoded. I've passed along your report to our development team in the bug that's already filed for it (OPM-5075). Sorry for any inconvenience this causes you until it's been fixed.

    Multi-word searches in the main app can be done using its URL handler with something like:


    onepassword4://search/'App Store'

    Those URLs properly decode the embedded space characters.
