I've just discovered today that when you use "Phrases" section, "Phrase" field filter is searching only for corresponding words in "Value" column, but not in "Hint" and "Column" fields. I'm not sure you'd consider this as a bug, so I've posted it here.

  1. I'm guessing, that you've used search box in top right corner of the list?

    If so, then this search box only searches through data in columns, that are
    currently displayed.

    This is done because:

       1. there are no mapping between each column in db table and list to be
       able to search for columns you don't see
       2. searching in the columns, that are not displayed might confuse user,
       because in search results he will see records with no keywords he searched
       and no idea why they were found

  2. no, I'm using the search box at top of "Phrase" column, which I've called "Phrase" field filter.

  3. That's because there are dedicated columns for hint and column
    translations, which are hidden by default.

  4. ah, nice information :) So I'll display them and use top right search box.

  5. There are "Hint Translation" and "Column Translation" columns in that grid, but they are hidden by default.

    Please use "Select Columns" menu entry after clicking "View" toolbar button to add them.
