Lightroom CC - I have search words to all my photos but nothing happens when I write a word in the search field "search among my photos". Instead I have to click on filter and then manually select among the keywords which is rather annoying as I have quite many search word.

I'm sorry if this is too basic but to search your entire library make sure that "All Photos" is selected in the "My Photos" panel on the top left side of the screen. Otherwise it will only search in the selected folder or album.

Does that help?

A long shot - which language do you use for Lightroom?

A keyword that was entered manually should always be found, regardless of the language. How else would you be able to search for names (which are 'language agnostic')?

I agree it should, but it might narrow the scope of the bug if it's only affecting non-English language versions.

Hi Peter
Can you try to search the same in Lightroom web? Below steps should help you with that:
1. Go to https://lightroom.adobe.com from your browser and login using the same credentials
2. Select an album or all photos and search for the keyword through the search field at the top

Please share if the search worked for you from the web client so we could narrow down where the issue might be.

Hi Ankur,
I did as requested and it worked immediately searching with keywords from  https://lightroom.adobe.com.
