Whenever I try to enter an exercise into my diary, even when entering exactly as it appears in the database ("Abdominal Crunches", for example) it says there are no matches. However, it is in the database under the Database tab. This is very frustrating and has happened for nearly everything I try to enter (Abdominal Leg Raise, for example). Very discouraging.

Hello,

Thank you for taking the time to contact us and for bringing this to our attention. We are aware of the issue where specific exercises are found in our database, but cannot be logged. Those entries are there for use with partner app syncing of workouts and are not intended for individual use. We understand this is confusing for users and are working on keeping these entries hidden from user-initiated searches. We hope to have a fix in place as soon as possible. Please accept our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
In the meantime, you may also create the exercise for yourself, which would then be available for logging from your My Exercises list. If you would like to take advantage of this option, please visit the following page for instructions.

For Abdominal Crunches, currently you can add that exercise from the Strength Training section.

Warm Regards,
Bruce
