Properties: Add a filter box to the properties list

Use case or problem

When working with properties, I see all properties from across my entire vault. It’s difficult to find the exact properties on the notes I may be wishing to work with.

Proposed solution

Add search field above properties list that allows user to filter what properties appear. Specifically, if I wanted to see the properties for my People notes, I can add path:Things/People and only see properties that appear on notes in that folder.

For my writing properties, I can filter by path or search for “writing” and see only the properties prefixed with “writing-” (eg: writing-format, writing-status, etc.).

Current workaround (optional)

Currently, I open one of the target notes and show properties. Then I use that list to identify the properties I want from the Show all properties list.
