I'm using an Entity Reference field set to Views: Filter by an entity reference view. That works. I can choose my view: maps_by_project_season – Entity Reference.

I've chosen 3 fields in the view, and added them all to Format: Entity Reference list via settings, and I see all 3, separated by -, in the preview.

But not in the autocomplete field. That only shows the title. What am I missing?

This is a known bug in Drupal 8, see: View output is not used for autocomplete display you could try the patch in #76

There was also another disccusion about the same thing here Views Filter by an entity reference view not working as expected, before it was closed as duplicate.
