** Description changed:
(As seen in the latest daily build of 32bit Ubuntu Budgie)
- See attached screenshot. Searching within settings is currently not very
- useful / intuitive, as it only finds results at the level of top-level
- menu entries / categories, but not the items within them.
+ See attached screenshot. Searching within settings is currently not as
+ useful / intuitive as it could be, as it finds results for some items
+ located within the top-level menu entries / categories, but not all
- As an example, searching for "uni" brings up Universal Access, but the
- same search tool produces nothing when searching for items within the
- Universal Access category (e.g. "contrast", "screen", "cursor", etc).
+ Being able to find all menu sub-items from the search tool without having to
pore through individual menus is the ideal outcome, and is my intention in
raising this bug report - the individual examples below are merely instances of
this broader pattern. Please note that these examples seem to be changing
rapidly, as overnight updates have made some search terms return valid results
when only a few days ago they didn't.
+ Examples of search terms that don't work / work fully:
+ - cursor (no items found; should return "Universal Access")
+ - high (ditto)
+ - sound (only returns the "sound" menu; should also return "Universal Access"
+ - sharing (brings up some valid results, but not "Notifications" which
includes the item "desktop sharing".
+ - desktop (ditto)
+ Examples of search terms which do work properly:
+ - contrast
+ - screen
+ - size
