It would be very useful to be able to filter my list at multiple levels with a search. The easiest way to show the desired behavior is through this shared list: https://workflowy.com/s/QXsuGEhYWT
Another way to think about this problem might be something like XPATH search syntax:
Path Expression Result
bookstore Selects all nodes with the name "bookstore"
/bookstore Selects the root element bookstore
Note: If the path starts with a slash ( / ) it always represents an absolute path to an element!
bookstore/book Selects all book elements that are children of bookstore
//book Selects all book elements no matter where they are in the document
bookstore//book Selects all book elements that are descendant of the bookstore element, no matter where they are under the bookstore element
I'm not saying implement XPATH. There are just some interesting concepts that could be borrowed from that style of path navigation in a WorkFlowy outline.
