I think this is my first post on this forum, so hi everyone ;)

The search in OF very powerful but a little frustrating for me at times.

It seems to default to searching the currently selected item in the left hand projects panel.

I would often prefer if there was a search everything mode so that the search would cover all my library items. Maybe there could be a way to do this within the existing interface with a special search keyword 'all'

Another issue is that search doesn't seem to find Project Folders either. For example i had a folder named 'Goals' with projects for each of my goals inside. I searched for Goals and found nothing! Took me a while to figure out what was going on...

Anyways, what do you people think? Is there something I can do to get what I want....? A quick shortcut to search all....? Less clicks is good... ;)
