Search of marketplace searches includes keywords but not titles

Marketplace purchaes are very very hard to find in game.  It seems that the isssue relates to keywords and titles. If I use a search term that matches a keyword, I seem to get results. However, if I use terms from the name, no results. 
Out of curiosity, what items and associated strings are you having issues searching for?

Try this one: “Glass Wall Corner” from&nbsp; <a href="https://marketplace.roll20.net/browse/set/1909/space-metropolis" rel="nofollow">https://marketplace.roll20.net/browse/set/1909/space-metropolis</a> I search for “wall”

Things to try: 1) Make sure that you do not have the search selector set for "Tokens". 2) Total guesswork: "Wall" returns a lot of hits and it might be timing out. My guess is that the search functions searches an index of the entire Marketplace and filters the results by whether or not you have purchased them. It would probably be simpler than building a search index for every user. Try narrowing the search a bit with "glass wall" instead of just wall.

1- selector was in everything 2- An interesting theory. If so, I hope they can fix the query. What I really want to be able to do is do a search for wall and have all of the walls I have purchased come up, just so I can choose which one I want, I don’t necessarily even know that I’m looking for the glass wall because I’m trying to look at the pictures and pick one that fits what I happen to be making at the moment

I have now performed extensive testing on this for every purchased item I have (Cyberpunk Chronicles: Codes in the Clouds,Cyberpunk Chronicles: Corporate Characters, Cyberpunk Chronicles: System Shock, Space Metropolis, and Cyberpunk Chronicles: Downtown City Circuit). I've found that the search is definitely finding keywords, but not finding anything in the name of the item. If the keywords in the name of the item (like wall) are not also stored as a keyword in the marketplace, then the item does not show up when searched.
Hi again, went back and dug a little further for more information on how Search works. Searches for marketplace art include the name of the item, but if it isn't specific enough it might not find it because there are too many results as the index holds all marketplace items, and then the server filters away what you don't own, and shows you some of those in that yellow bit to function as sort of an ad.&nbsp;You can search for the set name and an item in that set if you want, though. So you should be able to search "space metropolis wall" to get all the walls from that set as an example (Though as Keith said, it is likely a good idea to set the search to 'everything' in general). And if it ISN'T functioning like that, something is broken and we'd love to have you write in to <a href="mailto:team@roll20.net" rel="nofollow">team@roll20.net</a> with this to help us help you.
