At the moment we use the OSM-search plugin to navigate our maps. However, this plugin only works if you are online. We do have an address shapefile that could be used in conjunction with Select by Expression, but it's a cumbersome procedure. So what I would really like, is a search panel like OSM-search, that can search in a specific layer and specific columns. I have attached an image that should explain what I'm looking for.

Quickfind plugin does what you need. Can you confirm and close the bug if this is sufficient?

Yes it seems QuickFinder does what I need. But it's very confusing and there's no help. You may close this issue, but I'm still hoping for a better tool.

Although QuickFinder does the job some tools should be added to core at some point especially heavily used ones. I also personally find the latest plugin update very confusing and hard to use

P.S. I understand python plugins fill a need/void and apprecciate the effort developers make with their time on them
