Quick access in the category list of "Search" command

Post by Gwenael Q. »

In Tool > search, when condition is about categories, please consider adding a quick access to a given category by typing its name somewhere. A "collapse all" button would also be welcomed....

As the database grows, the category list grows too and when very long defining a search by category can be tedious...

Thank you for listening

Following up on this. Is this feature still on the radar or planned to be added?

I found myself more often categorizing images than renaming the file name for each image. The total number of categories grows as time goes. When it comes to search images, searching based on the file name is not really helping me find images I spent time categorizing.
It would be great if searching based on category names can have auto-fill as well, like when creating the categories or a way to hint existing category names as you type.
