The concept of Centralized Tasks and Reminders is splendid. The different name matching methods are brilliant as well (though they are a bit hard to get used to).

I withdraw my last statement :) I got used to it pretty quickly. The "Name Contains Characters from Key String" Method is simply phenomenal. Makes filtering much faster in most of the cases, though it requires a great deal of intuition. A small notice: both "Name Contains Key String" and "Name Contains Characters from Key String" have a serious a handicap when the complete name (or all the characters) is a subset of other names. In this case the desired object might be pages away from the top in the popup and no further keypresses can make the list narrower. Providing that these two methods will disregard alphabetic order of the popup items anyway, perhaps sorting the filtered results by length first and alphabetically after could make this new feature even more powerful.

Great job you did there, thank you very much. Keep up the good work!

Would you please create a separate post with your enhancement suggestion and an example describing what you mean by "sorting the filtered results by length first?" Which length?

PS. The 2 new methods have been developed in response to users asking to allow filtering object names ignoring their prefixes. So if all tables in a database begin with a prefix like TBL_and all views begin with VW_ prefix, typing the prefixes wouldn't be required to locate *all* names containing the same common word. For example, TBL_Orders table and VW_OrdersSummary view will appear both in the popup after typing word Order.
