Can't view all search results in modern document library
I love the search in the modern document libraries, however there are some issues displaying results when the search is too broad.
If a user types a keyword search in the top left-hand corner, then clicks "see more results", they will often get the message "no items match your search" despite just seeing some results in short list below the search box.
The error should either be "there are too many results", or the results should be split into pages.
When Content Approval is activated for a Document Library in Versioning Settings, documents in this library no longer show up in search results. This is very inconvenient because documents that are in a draft, pending or even in an approved state cannot be found with search, both at the library and at site level.
Also, there seems to be a bug: when switching back from -Yes- to -No- in the setting of "Require content approval for submitted items?", the setting "Who should see draft items in this document library?" in "Draft Item Security", continues to allow the option of "Only users who can edit items".
In a new library which hasn't been changed the setting of "Require content approval...", only the option of "Any user who can read items" is available in "Draft Item Security".
Please allow the documents in a library that has Content Approval setting on, to be searchable.
Below that dumb message "No items match your search", all the way down, there is a light blue, small font link "Expand search to all items in your organization".

When you click see more results you only search within the current view. So if you have added some filters on the current view you may get a different result in the instant search below the search box and when you click see more results.
