Can I search Trash on the Mac?

Hi, I have found some very old posts asking this same question but I can not find anything current and I cannot find anything in the help.

so my question remains 'Can I search Trash on the Mac?'

Thank you for your help.

    Hi there @iwaddo

    You can indeed search the Trash within the 1Password Mac application, but you first need to switch to the Trash specifically. Searching within the "All Items" category or any of the other categories will not include results from the Trash. But once you switch to the Trash, you can search within it like any other category.

    That works, excellent thank you.

    A little clunky though as I potentially have to do two searches if I cannot find something and I am not sure whether it has been previously trashed. Does not happen often though so not a huge deal.

    Thank you for your help.
