Resource search in the main folder does not pull up content in subfolders.

You have to actually click on each subfolder

This happens in the main resource of the template account.

When in a regular account -- (subaccount) -- you can search while in the main folder, but not in the sub-folder.

When a subfolder is highlighted, you cannot search within additional subfolders. You need to click the subfolder

The search feature works per selected folder.

Prior to the latest update, you could search by the whole tree or just a 'branch" (folder)

What is the logic of removing the ability to search the whole tree?
What if I don't know the folder that a file is in?
Or what if I want every image - regardless of folder - that has a shared name?
Or what if I name my images by size and then put them in folders based on use -- and want to search by size?
Or if I put them in folders by size, but want every one of a certain type, ie. background?

I'm not sure why the search changed from being as flexible as before to now -- only searching within folders.

I've fielded numerous complaints from customers regarding search. They are saying the content isn't there.

The expectation when in the 'all' folder is that 'all' content is searched. But this is not the case in the new build.

This change is counter-intuitive, and I am requesting that the 'all' search come back.

I also second Justad, the search should show globally that is if an item  is found in 3 folders it should show the folder and the item name earlier it used to be shown without showing the folder name and now we have to go to the respective folder and search.
