Searching just constrains whatever view you are on instead of opening a separate results panel.

If you are a level above the results you want, just click through, and your search will be preserved.

Above is a search that started at the Workspace level for the word ‘Work’. There were many results and under the Stories section there are 3 assigned and 1 further work.

Clicking through one of the assigned stories takes us into a story with the search still there. Then we can see that only the description and one Todo in that story matches for the word ‘work’.
