ctrl-n Search for class truncates results. Please help.

Hi,
I'm trying to convince my new shell out for Idea...

Anyway - people evaluating here are complaing about when you use the search-for-class ctrl-n function that it cuts off the list of classes after about maybe 20 or so and just says "..." for the last item in the drop-down list.

It is very annoying since we have thousands of classes, some with similar names.

I have tried double clicking the ellipse, right clicking, searching for parameters to controlling the max classes returned etc etc. etc.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I don't want to stuck using awful eclipse :)

that first line should read:

"I'm trying to convince my new company to shell out money for Idea..."

Also, as a new user you might not be aware that searching for CDO would
filter the list to only classes like CommonDataObject, or
CreateDirectoryOption, as well as any that come after it such as
