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.

- Thanks for posting Pete!
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.

Search is broken! I have a long running documentary project containing 4500 assets and growing, sorted into well organised bins 3 levels deep. The only things search will find are *some* of the temp music mp3's. Nothing else. I have added copious amounts of metadata to my media to make it easier to find what I need. Now it is pointless.
I've tried starting fresh with a brand new project, imported the media only (no sequences or anything else) - and i get the same result in the fresh project. Search is not working in a large project. I am currently running Premiere 13.0.3 on macOS High Sierra 10.13.6
Search bins are also broken.
Not working either! 13.0.2, Mac Mojave 10.14.2
"Don't update complex project across major new versions of Premiere Pro. -
Overall, however, you should start and finish a project using the same version for fewer issues like this."
You're not serious are you Kevin? If you are, Adobe Premiere Pro is certainly not the idea software for documentary films which can take years of dedication to complete.
Please get this fixed soon!
I have the same issue in Premiere Pro CC 13 running on Windows 10.
Search bins and search function in Premiere are not working. It only finds some of the files I expect it to find.
I confirmed that the metadata I have entered to the files is traveling with the files. I created a new project and reimported the the files and I see all metadata intact. Yet, Premiere can't find the files using search bins or search function.
Please Adobe fix this. This bug makes Premiere unusable for any organized editor.
Yes big problem, very annoying to not have basic functionality that I was depending on not work. Wasting a lot more time searching for things already that were sorted... Why is this always an issue with Premiere Pro?
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.
