Such a handy tool that really trumps Roam's search functionality!

Thank Dharam for this wonderful plugin for Roam Research. Roam is the second brain, and Roam Portal helps me immensely to location the information -- Remember the dawn of the internet age that you don't really get what you want until Google arrives? I really hope the author could implement page-level search (search all the block in a same page) rather than just block-level search (only search in the same block). Usually there are hierarchy in the outlier app, e.g., first level is "project A", and 2nd level is "feature A", and rest of the notes about "feature A" are nested in "feature A" block. If I want to search a note about "feature A", typing "feature A" and other keywords could quickly narrow down to a list of relevant blocks. Once again thanks for the plugin and keep up the good work!
