I'm trying to create an intersection between two categories on Wiktionary using PetScan (http://tools.wmflabs.org/catscan2/catscan2.php), but I can't get it to work. What I've read says it should be possible to do, so I'm pretty sure the error is user-generated! (ie; I don't know what I'm doing.)

Basically I want to generate a list of entry links that are tagged in both of the following categories:

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Category:Japanese_terms_spelled_with_kanji_with_kun_readings https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Category:Japanese_terms_spelled_with_kanji_with_on_readings

The first has 2009 subcategories and the second, 1035 subcategories.... way too many to check manually. If someone could help me out, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.
