Strange Problem with Toolbar Search

If I search from the Tools/Search window, searching does exactly what it is supposed to do according to the settings.

If I search from the Toolbar window, it only searches in the selected Database, even with “all” selected.

This only started happening today.

Any suggestions


Search has always worked that way. The Search window (command-shift-f, or Tools>Search) is a global search that can search across all open databases while the toolbar search field searches only the currently selected database. Selecting the Search for>All option in either case tells DEVONthink that you want to search on name and content and comment and etc. It is not an option to search for All databases.

Thanks very much for comprehensive answer Greg. I must be mistaken about it working differently previously. I have only been using DT for a week.
