"Create new search bin from query" button was working last week, now it's not! There is no new bin visible resulting from the search. Windows 10, Premiere 14.0

As of the 2020 version Adobe still hasn't fixed the problem, despite what Patrick Palmer claimed in 2018. Fortunately, re-launching Premiere seems to do the trick.

Search bins still not fixed -- here's another post from 2019: https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911233-premiere-pro/suggestions/36466480-premiere-pro-cc-2019-13-0-2-search-find-bin-fi
Ed Torr commented
While this issue may have been "addressed", it was not "successfully addressed". 12.1.2 did not resolve the issue -- it was evident immediately in July of 2018 that it was not fixed, nor has it been fixed since. Patrick Palmer ( https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/users/768668998-patrick-palmer ) please address.

I still face this issue intermittently. I'm working with 7,262 clips, all with metadata. Not being able to search is not being able to edit. I think it's fundamentally wrong to ask for money for services that are inconsistent and unreliable. And I think Adobe's response to the situation is dismal at best–120 comments, no support.
"Don't upgrade your project" shouldn't be Premiere's mantra. You should expect to be able to upgrade your project with each release.
I've been exporting ALEs to test switching to Avid.
Working with 14.01, windows.

v13.0.1 0n mac OS 10.13.6, the search window is very buggy, working intermittently, very frustrating, slowing work down a lot. Please, please fix.
MICK STAINES commented
Fix the project window search bar. It has not worked since 13.0.2 and all subsequent versions have not rectified this "HUGE" flaw...
I can attest: still occasionally not working in v13.1.2 on MacOS 10.13.6
This is still not working but is marked as completed.
While you continue to struggle with Adobe's crippled software, their staff can be found lounging around here: https://www.cinema5d.com/inside-adobe-an-exclusive-behind-the-scenes-documentary/
Everyone looks very comfortable and wealthy. Well done Adobe.
Adobe is playing games. Search Box is still not working correctly in v13.1. But of course there are more 'new features' while crippling and breaking old 'critical features' like search.
With this latest release 13.1, it has been said they say they have fixed 103 bugs but if you go here (Adobe's bugs fixed page) they don't list what those bugs are: https://helpx.adobe.com/ca/premiere-pro/kb/fixed-issues.html
Super lame Adobe... but it fits with the path you are on.
But I'm on the most recent version of premiere and this issue persists? Why? (APRIL 2019)

No. It still does not work!
Still not working.
Christopher Reynolds commented
Its not working 13.03 What is going on? This is an essential feature
Downgrade to 13.0.1, it works fine for our 3 bays here.
Cole Freedman commented
Still very bad and very annoying!
Still not fixed, super bad!! Unable to search large project

Search box not working in Premiere Pro 13.0.3!!
My doc project has 17,000 files and shot over the span of 10 years with months spent organizing and keywording. I'm deep into the edit now and this is hugely frustrating.
Broken and unsearchable!!! Thanks Adobe.
I will be looking toward Resolve if I can make it out of your mess.
Mac Pro (Early 2013)
Premiere V 13.0.3 (build 9)
