    Intensive searches in FileMaker can be slow and slows down other users too.

    We could have non-blocking find, that will run in background. It will display small progress bar in status area with number of records currently found (button/link). When user clicks on records, it will stop find and show only found records.


    User interface:

    progress bar   number of records found (incrementing)      button

    [###          ]    4 records found...                                         [Cancel]



    I don't know if the search in FileMaker is transactional (all records checked for change during operation) - if yes, there should be an option to disable it.
