Is there a way to search Answers for answers? Answered

Is there some way to find specific answers? Whenever I put a search in (e.g. "gears"), it only comes up with results in the Instructables category. And I can't find any dialog boxes to change the search category to "Answers". It just seems to me that a system as awesome as the "Answers" section is needs accessibility to get the full potential out of it. (It's forgivable at this point because it's still new).

I figured that there was something in the works. Based on how well-implemented the rest of the site is, I figured it was probably on the schedule, just not ironed out yet.

I believe it is in-work.

You can try using Google for now.

I don't understand why Answers wasn't made searchable from the beginning. Instructables really needs to add some checkboxes under the search box for Guides, Answers, and Forums
