Question: using hint for symgen, why not giving answer here?

When I give symgen a HINT, using functional form f(x),g(x)*y it does not generate the infinitesimals of the Lie group for this ODE.

But from the answer given using way=abaco1 it is clear they have this form, where f(x)=-1/x and g(x)=1/x^2

From help, it says

HINT=[e1,e2], indicates to the solver that it should take e1 and e2 as the infinitesimals, where e1 and e2 can contain a maximum of two indeterminate functions. The solver tries to determine the infinitesimals to solve the problem.

And I am using only two indeterminate functions. These are f(x) and g(x)

Am I making a mistake somewhere? Please see worksheet below.

#why this below do not give result?

diff(y(x), x) = (1-y(x)^2)/(x*y(x))+1


[_xi = -1/x, _eta = y/x^2]

#it works for this though. May be the two functions
#can  not be both functions of x at same time?
#one function must be function of x and the other of y?
#But help does not say that.

ode :=diff(y(x),x)=(x+cos(exp(-x)*(1+x)+exp(y(x))))/(exp(x+y(x)));

diff(y(x), x) = (x+cos(exp(-x)*(1+x)+exp(y(x))))/exp(x+y(x))

[_xi = exp(x), _eta = x*exp(-y)]
