    Gerry, If , after you double click ) and you get the behavior you describe you can go over to the left side in Advanced search and click "Cataloged" and it will search your cataloged folders for images with that key word.

    For me the choice is sticky even between launches of the program.

    For me it is not sticky. As soon as I click on another folder the search reverts to filter current photos.

    Also if you right-click on a keyword in the master keyword list there is an entry Find cataloged photos with keyword. This doesn't either until you choose the option in the left pane.

    I agree that it's not working. If in Filter you set it to local, then right-click a keyword and select find cataloged photos, the Filter does not change from Local to Catalog as it should.

    This is still a problem in 2020.5.  it is very frustrating to repeatedly  change the Advance search option back to "All" or "catalogued"   Is there no permanent fix?

    No, there is no way to change this behavior. I think this change was made in response to the complaints about how when typing in a search term the search would happen after every character making it next to impossible to type anything.

    See, the correct way to fix this problem is to use a 3 second timer on the input field that resets with every keystroke so that the search doesn't start until the 3 second timeout after the final character. It would only take 2 or 3 lines of code to do that, but nooo...

    How about just hitting [Enter] to start the search?

    To me, it appears that the 'plan' was to find images on the fly as you type. No one would enter a partial word and then hit Enter, but they might pause to see if anything comes up. Also, hitting Enter usually means that the next character is starting a new entry which is not what we want either.

    Still, hitting Enter would be better than what we have.

    Here's the one that I find absolutely bonkers.

    Try editing a search term after you've typed something in. For example: enter the typo 'L Angeles' then go back and try to add the missing 'os'. After each character you type the cursor automatically jumps to the end of the field so if you are not watching carefully you wind up with 'Lo Angeless'. Insertion points should absolutely never change location by themselves.

    That's caused by the same problem. Since the search starts with every character that you type, every keystroke restarts the search, so if you click back into the word somewhere and hit a key, the entire text entry is taken as a whole to start the new search which puts the cursor back at the end of the field.

    This could also be fixed by proper timing or a simple Enter key.
