Offline search not possible in LR CC mobile

You cannot search existing keywords when there is no internet connection. Imagine you sit in a beer garden and want to show pictures to your friends and it is not possible. Or sitting in the airplane and want to search a picture, again, not possible. OK, the new advanced autodetect scenes need internet, but there are still normal keywords and descriptions in my pictures. You can test the issue with switching to airplane mode and touch on search symbol. Then the message appear that no search is possible. .

I've never suffer from this problem previously. But today I was offline for certain reason and need to search some picture.

Damn thats real. Unable to search offline!!! Not a joke.

Thats crazy. The more I use LRCC, the more I discover LR CC, the more I discover importants lake

I second this request. Search should work offline and also have filter expressions like AND/OR/NOT. 

By the way, there is absolutely zero excuse for Sensei not to work offline: Apple, Eyeem, Polarr and tons of other apps use local on-device machine learning libraries to provide visual recognition when there is no connection. For the money we're paying Adobe monthly, we should get both.

I would also like to have the option to see the Sensei tags for all of my images and add them to my own tags when I click them (so they are exported when I take an image out). 

Go Adobe, you can do this before we hit 3.0 next year!

Meanwhile the Filters for your own keywords is working offline in the new release , but it is very cumbersome to scroll and select. Adobe your are on a good way, but have to go still some miles
