There is the option of "Show Search By Category" but this shows ALL the categories, which can be a problematic filter if the client doesn't know which category to pick. If the wrong category is selected there will be no results.
Americommerce already knows which categories have results from the search, a simple query grouping the Category ID will yield ALL categories that contain the search term.
Also, the search results already can bring the categories using the CategoryList section, so it is possible to slightly modify the code to create a drop down to narrow the searches, I had come up with a code that could have worked but if failed because the CategoryList has other hidden code that cannot be modified.
If Americommerce could duplicate the CategoryList section with one that has no hidden code, this will work:
<div id="dvAdvancedSearch" class="pad-t-10">
Search in:<select name="ddSearchCategories" id="ddSearchCategories">
<option value="0">Entire Store</option>
