Changing Search Progress to Graphical Display

Asked by Jacky Alciné on 2011-01-29

As I use Evince very, very often, I've noticed that when I search for text in my large documents, that a text progress appears at the bottom of the screen. I'm assuming that this is a logarithmic search for text, and since incremental progress can be displayed (as text, currently) that it be replaced with a progress and an indicator of how much time would be remaining for the current search to be completed. Also, instead of having it pop up constantly, it can tell if the search operation will take an extremely short time (say 30 milliseconds) and show only 'Searching...' instead. I feel that such a little feature would enhance the user experience of Evince greatly.
