For many months, I have been wondering why in-app search in PS for me doesn't work anymore. Recently I found that the reason is that at custom scaling size (I use 115% on my QHD monitor) the in-app search window doesn't display. While this is not an issue for default sizes 100% and also 125%.

If there is nothing that I can do about this (other than using Windows default scaling sizes) I would be happy to see this fixed in PS.

In the past days I found that using Windows custom scaling levels is not a general No-Go if you want to be able to use in-app search dialog. Eg. in my case 115% don't work but 113% (for PS 2019), or 114% (for PS 2020).

For more details, see the updated thread in Adobe Support Community.

The mean thing is that everything else in PS seems to work fine (at least to me) if comes to UI scaling, so you would probably never realize what the root cause of this issue is.

Adobe please fix this !!!
