In follow up to my initial question which is now solved (Issue with many to many relationship ), but taking the opportunity to pick you guys brains :-), I have 3 follow up questions related to the necessity to have a pop-up menu in stead of a drop down list:

  1. I now miss the opportunity to filter based on the typing of the contributor's name. So how to solve the issue with thousands of authors ?
  2. and related to that: how will a pop-up react with thousands of possible contributors.
  3. and third: I can add a + sign so that the user can create a new contributor from within the portal, but how do I make sure that newly created contributor is then immediately selected ?
