I think it would be nice to have a "text" ticket filter.
So you would be able to search in a subset of tickets.

Status = new
Assigned = to me
Text = <a string which is in the ticket (description or note)>

I have seen that there is a new filter for subject search,
maybe it is possible to add one similar filter for history and comments?

A filter for description was added in Redmine 3.2 (#1159) and a filter for notes was added in 5.0 (#5893). I want a filter that searches description and note.

A filter for Notes implemented in Redmine 5.0 makes it easier to find issues. However, when you want to find issues that contain certain keywords, I think you want to search for both description and notes. In fact, I often search using the notes filter and then search again using the description filter.

It would be a great enhancement if Redmine will have a filter that searches both description and notes. Or a filter that allows you to search for the subject, description, and notes at once is also would be nice.
