How can we improve Azure Search?

Find all documents and get single collection property

I have a index with person data. One property of it is a skills field that is a collection of strings. Search through that works just fine. For example
search=azure&$select=skills then you get all people that have Azure in their document and it shows the skills collection for each result.
However, when you want to get all possible skills by doing the query
search=*&$select=skills
then you do get all people, but almost all the skills fields are empty (except one for no apparent reason). What I want is to be able to only retrieve the skills field values of all users. But the query doenst work like that, which I believe is a bug.
