I am coming from Autodesk Eagle and I am new to Altium Designer. I just have a quick question. In Eagle I was able to have a lot of different libraries available in my library manager and whenever I entered something in the search bar, it searched for the component in all the available libraries. In Altium I added a couple of file base libraries to my component panel (.intlib and .dblib), some from the internet and one from me. When I use the search bar on top now, it seems to me that the search only happens in the library that I have currently selected. I tried it out with a couple of components. I am aware that there is the manufacturer parts search that goes through Altiums cloud database and the file based search where I exactly have to define of the fields, but that is not what I mean. Just wondering if there is a search that goes through all my file based libraries and that tries to match whatever I type.
