Payee Rename Rule not working properly

The rename rules are not working properly. When I attempt to add an additional keyword to the keywords list, the 'also rename existing transactions' gets disabled as if it cannot find related transactions. There are related transactions though, they are the same every month.

In this example I am attempting to rename a transaction for YouTube TV when 'google' and 'youtube' are in the statement name. You can see the match count goes to 0 when I add 'youtube' and I'm not able to apply this to all the other transactions with this keyword pairing.

Me attempting to create this rule directly from the transaction list by renaming the payee:

    Hello @doman412,

    Thank you for reporting this behavior to the Community, although I apologize that you're seeing this issue when creating a Payee Rule in Simplifi. 

    Would you mind providing a couple of specific example transactions that that Rule should be applied to with the Date, Payee, and Amount, please? Screenshots of the Transaction Detail view for each of the examples with the "Appears on your statement as..." info would be wonderful to have.

    Much appreciated!

    Here are 3 transactions for YouTube TV that I've since manually renamed the payee to YouTubeTV.

    Here is another transaction that I did not manually change:

    Along with me attempting to create the rename rule that should pick up this transaction but does not seem to find it:

    Is it possible another rule is preventing this rule from finding that transaction? I've looked through other Google related rules and each have multiple keywords and I don't think they should affect this one.
