Path included for search in file finder

In Ctrl+O document finder, the search valid only for the file name. I would like to include the path for file search.

Let say I put a document “6 June” in a folder “Day Plan”, I would like to be able to search the document by the key words “day plan June”. This makes the file structure more usable.

Does it make sense?

Yes, advanced code IDEs do this too. It makes the search quite a bit more complex though, from a technical perspective.

@Shida: what do you think? Fuzzy search also need to work on each path.

I want this too, but considering the difficulty to integrate with the current search, I’d push it off slightly to the future. At least until iOS gets released.
