Search within folder/notebook

When a notebook/folder is selected, the search should be limited to that folder.

I am not sure if you are asking for a button specifically for this, but you can perform this search with:

notebook:<name> <search term>

Here's a list of all the search filters:

Thank you. I thought by selecting/highlighting the notebook in the left sidebar would automatically filter by the notebook folder.

Disagree with the suggestion, and this would break lots of other workflows and functionality.

Suggestion if you need this type of search a lot: use the Favorites plugin's saved search feature to pre-populate searches with "Notebook: Notebookname". Of course, if you have a lot of notebooks that won't work well.

For me, I've found that searching without constraining to a notebook gets me my result quickly anyway. I suppose that's not true for all use cases, but it may work for you.

Totally agree with @mzguy and don’t forget Ctl-P command to search...

Is there a way to see which notebook the note is found?

For the All note and the search the notbook ist displayed in the note section.
