Search specific text

Hi All,

I have recently started using Office 365 Outlook and realised the search function behaviors differently.

It no longer wrap search code around specific text.

For example: I want to search all email sent by John.

What I used to do (in 2016 and 2019):

1. Type John

2. Highlight John

3. Click From

However, under Office 365 it will ignore what I have highlighted.

What I used to achieve in 2016 and 2019 is no longer working at Outlook 365.

It should automatically wrap the From code around the highlighted search term.

Is this a bug or new user experience for Office 365?

Thanks in advance.
