Email - Can't Populate To Field by Searching Contacts?

I've had my DX for a few weeks now, and am generally loving it. That being said, I've hit the following issue-

I'm in the messaging app, composing an email from a non-gmail account. If I just start typing a name into the To field, the DX will try to autocomplete it. I'm fine with that.

If I click on the person-with-a-plus-sign icon to browse through my contacts and then tap on one that has an email address listed, the DX seems to register the email address correctly.

However, if I tap on the icon and then type in a few letters to filter my contacts and then tap on the desired contact, the DX doesn't seem to recognize that I want to email the person. I'm returned to my message with nothing in the To field.

Is there a reason why the DX won't populate the To field based on my tapping on a contact after searching a bit? Is anyone else having this issue? Is there a fix or workaround?

Thanks for your help!
