When using "extended search", one has to select specific folders.
Whereas subfolders are selected too, when selecting folders at other places, in "extended search" this option does not work, unfortutately.
Therefore, one is forced to select each foider seperateley.
With 2614 subfolders this is no option.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. selection is one of the basic working features
when selecting folders within extended search, each subfolder must be included by default.
Add a new option to select/deselect sub-dirs in albumSelector will help, not only in Advanced Search tool.
Note : there is an option already for Tags tree view to select/deselect recursively. Look in Caption & Tags sidebar context menu.
I have a patch ready, where now in the advanced search the "AlbumTreeViewSelectComboBox" and the "TagTreeViewSelectComboBox" is used with a context menu. Now I've noticed that the search generally searched in the subalbums. Actually, the current state is sufficient.
But in the GUI, nothing indicate that recursive search is active or not.
Also, having this feature optional can be a plus. The way to turn on/off this feature through contextual menu is good.
This file still valid for 5.0.0 ?
In https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=353331 ,
a patch will be submitted that introduces context menus for album and tag selection where subtrees can be marked explicitly. With the patch, subtrees are not used automatically. The user can decide himself.
Git commit 660782be8137d8448ef10e5e944a2dd213d781cc by Mario Frank.

Pushed by mfrank into branch 'master'.
Added an overall improvement of fuzzy, duplicates and extended search.
1) Users can now restrict the results of fuzzy image/drop/sketch search to be in specific albums.
2) Users can now select both tags and albums in duplicates search and restrict the set of images in which duplicates are searched with logical operations (in selected albums or/and tags, in selected albums but not tags and vice versa and only in
selected objects of current tab)
3) In extended search, the tags selection can also be restricted such that images must be either tagged with at least one of or with all selected tags.
