performing a find within a portal within a popover?

Greetings to all you helpful people out there!


I'm pulling my hair out over something and would be most grateful for your input.


I've created a popover in an invoicing table that references information from an items table via a portal. However there are far too many items in the items table to be displayed concurrently on the popover.


I've already narrowed the found set by filtering the portal to find only items in inventory, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. I need to also be able to search that subset by the item's description (title).


Unless I'm missing something terribly obvious, this is not possible within a popover.


I have tried scripting this all kinds of ways but although it's not a problem to enter find mode, when I try to perform the find it closes the popover.


I feel like I must be missing something terribly obvious... at least I hope so!
