Description a07cd040897db54e103c 2014-03-05 17:03:59 UTC
The search function in the template manager (see screenshot) does only find *filenames* that *start* with exactly the search term.

First, it would be nice, if a template would also be found, if the search term occurs *inside* the filename and not only at the beginning.

Second, it would be very comfortable, if the search term would not only be searched for in *filenames* but also in document properties (metadata).

This has been fixed in the new template manager introduced in 5.2, which wont be there in 5.1.
