I have situations when I am offline due to factors beyond my control. It would be good to be able to search all my downloaded resources.

Right now when I am offline, the mobile app allows to search only recent resources or individual resources.

I agree! The "Entire Library" option should simply not be removed (a warning about potential missing results could be displayed in a dismissible banner), when offline.

I don’t know for sure (it would be interesting to find out), but my understanding is that these searches are performed “in the cloud“ normally. I wonder if there is a technical reason why it can’t do the full library.

I’d guess it has to do with the time and storage space to index the full library on a mobile device.

It is my understanding that this feature works on the desktop version of the app through the "index" which is built. It is also my understanding that the mobile app does NOT have this index. From my limited understanding, I would guess that mobile uses an inferior search method when offline.
