  • [x ] I have searched open and closed issues for duplicates

Bug description

I'm not able to search for messages. I'd find it useful to have a dialogue when pressing CTRL+f (like on webpages in Chrome) or having a context menu with a search option.


Platform info

Operating System: Ubuntu 17.04
Browser: Version 59.0.3071.115 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Signal version: Signal Private Messenger 0.41.3

I second this. I am using Signal as my main messenger now, and it is impossible to find something in chat history without full search.

I hope you will be able to add full history search.

If not, then at least I would welcome some possibility to save message into "important"/"starred" or something like that where I can put important messages..

Thank you.

Yes, full text search in Signal for Android is available, for the desktop version this issue is still open.


I would like that feature too.

Hope so see that fixed in near future.

I am just trying Signal, because Wire is too unreliable. But seing the Desktop App having no search is a no go :(

yes search in Desktop is absolutely needed!

All other things works great. With it could replace Skype...

is there any rough time horizon planning for this?

#367 is limited to members only so i have to ask here...
