Search both public topics and PMs by default

Is there a way to search for both public topics and PMs at once – and make that the default behavior for my site?

User case: I often know I’ve talked with someone about something but I can’t recall whether it was a message or a topic. To find it, I sometimes have to do two searches. And that’s charitably assuming that I use the correct keywords, which isn’t always the case :slight_smile:
