I have Evernote v7.0.2 for Android and it seems that shortcuts added to the home screen work correctly so long as they don't have any exclusions in them. If a search contains an exclusion (e.g. "coffee -tag:milk" or "tea -notebook:sugar") then the search works, but a shortcut created from this search will not work. The shortcut will produce zero search results. Unfortunately this makes 90% of my search shortcuts absolutely useless, which severely limits the usefulness of Evernote for me. It's been 21 months since the OP raised this bug. This seems like a very very long time for a bug fix of this importance.
