The search field only search for tag names. It should also search for the comments following the tags.

Do you work with a lot of different tags? Or just a lot of instances of a small number of tags?

I can see how this might make sense in some situations, but for anyone with a lot of different tags, this is likely to be confusing and unhelpful.

Also, are you thinking of the comment text on the same line as the tag, or are you going to then want the entire surrounding comment block searched?

Yes, I am thinking about the comment text on the same line as the tag, not more.
Yes, I use lot of instances of a small number of tags.

Somehow I use a hashtag as a "folder", and the comment text as an "element" in this folder. This allows a good organization of the code access.

Just an example among many: I have the hashtag "breakpoint". This is used to jump to about 20 strategic places on my code base (1 million line), where it is common to set a real break point. The little comment describes shortly each of these 20 places.

This makes sense, I have put in a feature request for this, to see what our developers make of this:
