What happened to "Selection" within the Find/Change - Search dropdown?

I just updated to InDesign 15.1, macOS 10.15.4. When I open the Find/Change window and use the Text tab, I type in my terms to find and replace, then click on the "Search" dropdown, my only options are now Document or All Documents. Why is there no longer a Selection option? See attached screenshot. 

This is something I need to do often - search only a selected section of text and perform the find/change within it, and NOT within the entire document. Please tell me this has not been removed!

 

Thanks

EDIT.... Now it appears to be working after closing and relaunching the app and my saved document. (By the way, I do realize it is necessary to first highlight some text before this Selection appears as an option, and I definitely tried that several times.)
