Search aliases like titles

It would be neat to search front-matter aliases just like searching for filenames/titles.

Use case

Many of my notes are named using full terminologies. I add abbreviations in the aliases for convenience. During a search, the abbreviations often come to my mind instantaneously while the full terminologies do not. Direct search for the abbreviation often result in unwanted results. There was a similar concern in Bug reports

Proposed solution

It would be great to add a search syntax for front-matter aliases or incorporate this into the file: syntax with a toggle in the setting.

The use of regex could improve the search results for the time being.


Similar request: Make file: find aliases as well. More on that on this thread
