ArcGis Online - unable to add a layer from "My Content"

Help appreciated on the following basic thing I cannot figure out when using ArcGis online.
I have uploaded several layers to arcgis online, and they show correctly in the "My Content" section of Arcgis Online.
Some are marked as "favorite"
I can correctly open them in ArcGis 10.2
I then create a new arcgis online map, and try to add them to my map, using the "add" button, choosing "Search for layers" in  "My Favorites" or "My Content" and the right keyword (or no keyword at all)
But: no layers are shown at any time!
The "within map area" checkbox is unchecked.
I have looked all over and cannot figure out what I am doing wrong.
The layers are in the correct projection.
Help appreciated!
