I agree, searching and/or filtering by custom fields is an absolute necessity. I am using custom fields for item priority and project associations, and because of the number of items I need to use I am unable to use labels for them. This power-up is almost useless without any search or filter capabilities.
As Matthew N hinted, the Filter search will search custom fields. Show Menu > Filter Cards, then type the custom field value you want to search for. For example, a custom field called "Frobnosticator" that populates from a list. Typing the selected value ("Bob") from the list in the Filter search will filter the cards to show the ones where Frobnosticator is Bob. It will probably also match card names containing "Bob" .. so it would be nicer if the filter would let you do Frobnosticator: Bob ... but, it doesn't (I tried it and got the same results as just filtering on Bob).
Or, just take it from Trello:
- Filtering: Board filtering now supports text, drop down list, and checkbox fields, and will surface cards that have fields that match filtered terms.
