Actually, I have been trying to think of a way to ask for similar
functionality, anywhere that you have to make a blind choice for a New or
Existing object. I am constantly searching for an existing object, only to
back out to create a new object.
The problem with my low tech solution of adding a "Create New" button on
the search dialogs was, all it would do would be to close the search and
open the New object. Easily replicated by hitting Esc, Back Arrow, Enter.
I'm liking your idea. A quick search in the new dialog. With the full
search in the Existing dialog. Right?
