The search box in macOS Messages.app seems to bring up results within conversations but doesn't search just by the name of the conversation sender or recipient.
Often I'm trying to find the latest conversation with a contact and it doesn't appear that I can just enter their name in the search box.
I'm curious if there is a way to specifically bring up a conversation by a specific contact.
Only workaround I've found is to go into Contacts.app and initiate a new message with them - it sends the message within Contacts.app but then when you switch back to Messages.app its the topmost conversation. Not an ideal workflow.
