Jeremy, it seems that this issue has already been reported upstream, but the
issue has been closed and I don't yet know how to reopen it:
I'd edit the desktop.in.in files directly myself, but am a newcomer to
the process for doing so. Any pointers to how-to's, etc?
Also, on the issue of Gnome having two upstream bugtrackers, I note that
according to the following link:
... they say that their plan is "Shortly after the new solution (Gitlab) is
setup, disable issue reporting in Bugzilla (as well as new accounts,
So I guess we can just use Gitlab for issues going forward.

Using Gnome Settings' search tool works for some but not all items
located under top-level menu categories
Status in gnome-control-center package in Ubuntu:
(As seen in the latest daily build of 32bit Ubuntu Budgie)
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
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:
