Intermediate "Find" results during search...
« on: November 26, 2011, 07:06:13 AM »
Would it be possible in the future to have not only the progress bar on the "Find" dialog, but also a count of the number of images that have been found so far that match the search criteria?  Sometimes I search a large collection of images across a whole year only to find after 10-15 minutes of searching that I had zero matches due to a mistake in my Find settings.  Having an incremental results indication (like the count of records found so far) would let me know that I am getting "something" during the long searches.

Thanks!

Mike,

I need to make the Find (and the Find and Replace) run on a background thread, so if I get the time to do that task, I'll add in some display information as well.
