My device is a Samsung Galaxy J7.

In the Neutron Playback-> Playlist Icon-> Playlist path.

If you search by artist name in Playlist, it is not inquired.

Also, In the music folders are not searchable by artist name.

Why aren't searching artist name in the Playlist or music folders?. Too uncomfortable.

There is definitely a problem with the search engine.

On the Artistes tab

Searching by artist name gives incorrect results occur at the same time.

Do these problems only happen to me ???

Could you be a bit more specific as to what exactly you want to do ?
Go to the track list, long press on Search, then you can search anything.

Well, as already written : there are two types of search.
If you invoke the tracklist, tap the search, you can search there.
Long Press will do a global search.

I agree : there is no extended filter functionality with which one could explicitely search for a specific artist, album etc.

I'll treat this topic as a feature request for such a filter functionality and move it to the development forum.
I'll rename it to "Searching in the tracklist"

There have been other requests for search improvement, e.g.
