Bug Description

Zim could use a feature for searching across notebooks. This could be activated from either the Select Notebook dialog, or from within an open notebookas an option in the Search dialog.

This option belongs in the search dialog. When enabled the results list should have an extra column showing the notebook name.

Changed in zim:
importance: Undecided → Wishlist
status: New → Confirmed

This should probably be a plugin which subclasses the search dialog. Could run as separate process, much like the tray icon. Would be nice if the tray icon has a menu item for this across notebooks dialog.

This would be a very much appreciated feature.
Now I use the gnome search tool in such cases, but directly in Zim would really speed up scanning the results.

It will be very necessary when full content search will appear in Zim.
