Lightroom: How to select images from a list of file names?

I'm trying to select a list of photographs... I have a list of file names separated by commas and I can't find the "library filter" options that are described online (maybe from previous versions of LR?)

I can search for a single filename and it will pull it up, but I need to find 185 selections and the program says "black hole." Does anyone know how I can do this? Thank you!

Update: it appears to max out at 2 images when searching multiple

Lightroom CC version: 2.1.1 [ 20181211-1217-31970e4 ] (Dec 11 2018

I tried the earliest available CC version as well.

Thank you!

You are using Lightroom CC. The Library Filter is part of Lightroom Classic which is version 8.2.  They are two different programs. Lightroom CC doesn't have a Library Filter like Lightroom Classic has. 

You might be meaning to use the other program?

I was hoping for similar functionality across the platforms. It doesn't seem I can download Lightroom Classic from Creative Cloud.

Lightroom Classic CC and Lightroom CC are both available via the Creative Cloud App. 

Which subscription plan did you purchase?

Hey, thanks! I got it figured...

I was looking for Classic as if it were another download version through the Lightroom CC back catalogue. I didn't realize it was listed as another program altogether in the Adobe Cloud menu!
