#1722 Option for field references to ignore search setting

When using field reference, to an item that is in a group with the 'Searching entries in this group' set to Disabled, the item using the reference can also not find the value.

If I re-enable searching to the group, everything is back to normal, but I wish to hide that group since it contains my templates and other info that is not valueable while searching.

So:
have 2 groups:
-one that is not searchable that contains an entry with 'real' values.
-one that contains one or more entries that use the reference feature {REF:x@x:xxxxxx}
These entries will only display {REF:x@x:xxxxxx} instead of the dereferenced data.

    The current behavior that you described is intended, i.e. not a bug. It will not be changed, because there are many situations where it is reasonable.

    However, maybe a parameter within the reference could be introduced that makes KeePass ignore the search setting, or a global option for this could be added. Thus I'm moving this to the open feature requests.

    Best regards,
    Dominik
