- Search-as-you-type is extremely slow and stuttered in v6 compared to v5.
- Search results do not show the actual matches when the matching text is within the login of a multi-login account.

Evzen wrote:The point is that SP5 actually displays the multi-login accounts WRONG - the logins are wrongly displayed in column Account and the the column Login actually displays the passwords.
This wrong view does not exist in SP6 anymore.
I do agree that the behavior of search is not friendly in the case you describe.
Reporting an error is one thing, but suggesting a working solution, that's a different story...
John Flyer wrote:msandrews, I am just curious. In what situations do you need to have the search phrase displayed? Is it not sufficient to have the actual account(s) displayed?
Evzen wrote:If you search for a text in Windows Explorer, it displays a preview of the found file with the searched phrase highlighted - fine...
But then when you open the file (e.g. Word file) from the search results, it won't bring you right to searched phrase, it will still "bring you to the neighborhood" only...
The SP search simply searches the accounts, thus it displays the results on the accounts level.
It's not a database program... unlike MS Access or LibreOffice Base are (these would surely bring you right to the very record containing the phrase).
The main purpose of SP is something else than perfectly comfortable editing of every possible attribute of the stored data, so I personally can definitely live with some discomfort in operations which are not performed too frequently.
