We too have this problem.
In core/relationship.php it appears that acf is using WP’s search (‘s’ parameter in a query) which searches both title and content. With hundreds of organisations having the word ‘support’ in their content it makes selecting the one organisation with title Support U in the normal way (just typing it into the search box) almost impossible in practice (though putting double quotes round the whole search term can help).

ACF wouldn’t be so widely used in WordPress if it didn’t have some pretty amazing capabilities. In this article, we look at a few of the features we’ll discuss during “7 things you didn’t know you could do with ACF” at #WPEDecode later this month. https://t.co/5lnsTxp81j pic.twitter.com/Yf0ThPG1QG— Advanced Custom Fields (@wp_acf) March 16, 2023
