Android bar code scanner seems not to use source list

Android app version: 1.1.0 (build 25)
Android version: 9.0

Problem: scan book with bar code produces no results although ISBN is found on same source on website

Steps to reproduce:
- on phone: from "Home", "Account", select only one source ("Biblioteca Naţională a României")
- on phone: scan book with bar code - checked that correct ISBN is read by the bar code reader
- on phone: no results are found
- on website: manually add bar code on website and use same source ("Biblioteca Naţională a României")
- on website: book is found - but I do not add it to my collection
- on phone: scan book with bar code
- on phone: book is now found!!

Based on the above maybe the app always uses only overcat (and a manual website search would add the book to overcat).

Please advise if there is any way to use the app.

(probably Murphy's law as soon as you click post you find a similar bug report). For the reference:

https://www.librarything.com/topic/303906 (other bug)
https://www.librarything.com/topic/302878#6741558 (original report)

Note: not 100% sure they are the same bug, but they look similar anyhow.

Pretty sure this is a known issue as reported in the second thread you link to.
