You are welcome!
I just tested, but it seems to be working on my end. For example if I type in appellate with all boxes checked, I get these results: https://i.imgur.com/dMwtVtv.png
When I uncheck the 'appellate' category, results that are assigned to that category get excluded: https://i.imgur.com/EAgNu4S.png
Is this not correct?Best,
