Searching only inside a notebook?

Hi

Is it possible to search inside a certain notebook only? Currently both Ctrl-G and regular search bar brings results from all notebooks, and that is abit confusing since I do not know where the results are coming from exactly. This is an issue when hundreds of hits are returned, so in such situation I would like to limit my results to a certain notebook.

thanks

I'm also interested in this feature, it looks so natural to me to search in the current notebook. I like the way it is implemented in github:

It's been implemented for some time now:

notebook:my_notebook whatever

There is a whole section of the guide dedicated to searching (https://joplinapp.org/#search-filters), granted it isn't as neat as the github one but it is definitely functional - I've been using the tabs plugin to pin a 'cheat sheet' tab that contains all useful Joplin stuff like shortcuts, markdown and search tags.
