Unable to search for comments, and some issues when searching heic files.

I am trialing Dropbox for business. I am not new to using DB, I just haven't committed to REALLY using it and basing management of my online content using it because then (and now) it boggles the mind how obvious features and functions aren't present or simply don't 'function'!

My question.. I have a folder of 100 images. While in the folder, I do a search for 'heic', which is an image format. I already know that there are 8 heic files in this folder.
The results of the search LITERALLY says 50+ matches, lists the heic files.. while also listing files that have absolutely nothing to do with heic! 
Now, I could go on further with numerous other issues like this, for example, not being able to search or even filter for 'comments' is blowing my mind! 

So, is this just me with this search issue or is this how they expect it to work?

Online search, is, well poor. It has to be said unfortunately. 

 

There is no search available for comments either.

Yes, I have a folder for book covers. I've added tags to show subject or author. But on some book cover images, I've added comments. I would love to be able to search by comments. Would be a nice feature to add to Dropbox. 

Need more support?
