When I do a search to check if a feature has already been suggested, it would be very useful to be able to limit the search to the Feature tracker only, but search rejected issues as well.

Suggested implementation: make the search use the very same issue list as the normal issue list, I will then have the whole array of other filtering options at my disposal.

Alternative: make it possible to "search in listed issues", so that I can set up a filter first, and then search within it.

At present checking for previous suggestions is dominated by Help issues and omits anything that had been rejected.

It is a very common problem for most places, that users keep asking same requests. May be not that much of a problem in corporate environment - but when end users are everywhere.

Take a look at a very intersting plugin Did you mean?

Yes, this could be solved by "DidYouMean?", but more overall this is also a request regarding a better Redmine search. Which could be really improved. The current search is not the best as we can get. The most of the search modules is good, but the issue search is not really good, as there is no way to filter closed or new issues out.

This would be great if this could be improved!
