We have a category field on a content structure that is searchable.

The category field has 4 levels like this:

Category Parent 1
--> Category Child 1.1
--> Category Child 1.1.1
--> Category Child 1.1.1.1

On the Search on the left column on Content Manager the category drop down shows them like this, all at the same level (as if they were all top level categories)

Category Parent 1
Category Child 1.1
Category Child 1.1.1
Category Child 1.1.1.1

This makes it unusable for multiple level categories when people are trying to search they would need to know which category is under what.

yea this was on purpose with the newer UI and has been around since 1.9.4 we can in the future here add some more searching options that drill

I think we definitely need something that drills if you don't want to add spaces to show the levels, because its very hard to know which category belongs to which level. Thanks!
