Premiere Pro CC 2019 13.0.2 search / find / bin filter issues
SEARCH/FIND/BIN NOT WORKING!
After the update to Premiere Pro CC 13.0.2 (on a Macbook Pro running OS 10.13.6) I started having issues with the project panel bin filter search not showing clips that I knew were in the project - I'd search for a word in the name of a clip and no clips would show up. I tried using the Cmd-F tool instead, and Premiere would either find nothing or stall out and rainbow wheel. Creating a search bin also failed to work properly - I'd create one to search for a word that was in the name or description of dozens of clips, and the search bin would remain empty.
I tried multiple solutions discussed in this thread about CC 2018: Premiere Pro CC 2018 Doesn't seem to be able to search the Project Panel . I trashed preferences, deleted the media cache and database, uninstalled and reinstalled the software, and tried the lock project trick. I still saw the same behavior. Tried starting a brand new project containing only 4 clips. In one case, 2 of these clips contained the same word in the name; searching on that word in the project panel filter would locate only one. In another case searching for a different word in the name of one of the clips revealed nothing.
can confirm this bug still exists, search is all but worthless at the moment

Yes, please address this Adobe, it's a major pain.
Here's my screen cast replicating the issue:
This is extremely frustrating. I to am having issues with my search bins and search feature within the Project window. I recently updated to Premiere pro 2019 13.0.2 and ever since the previous search bins that I created in previous versions of Premiere that were populated with many clips, now are empty. On top of this the search feature doesn't find all the clips containing the keyword I searched.
I hadn't realized this glitch initially, and have done a lot of editing to my project and can no longer open the project in a previous version as I'd loose too much progress. I have resorted to having my project open in both version of premiere, using the search feature in 2018, and using that as reference to find my clips in the 2019. This is not a streamlined way of working and is a huge pain. I'd love for this bug to get fixed.
