On the find dialog you can specify which fields to search in.  It
defaults to description, it sounds as if you want to select
"Description, Notes, or Memo".  Arguably that should be the default,
certainly that is what I usually use.

Also remember that if you find from an account register it will only
search in that account. For a global search go to the Accounts tab.
