    I also run into this unexpected and undesirable behavior frequently.

    Instead of just reporting "Cannot find match." I suggest the dialog box show the results but then be smart and offer the different search scopes as one-click buttons: Story, Document, All Documents.

    That way the existing behavior is retained for whoever likes it, but functionality is added to quickly offer the options of what many users will naturally want after their initial search fails.

    Luca, you are absolutely correct. This is something that is incredibly frustrating as I encounter it every single day, multiple times an hour, and there is absolutely no excuse for it as they just need to make the size of the search field expand and contract as a percentage of the dialog box width.

    While you're at it, Adobe, please utilize the full width of the dialog to display the entire name of the missing file to locate. Currently it appears you've allocated a fixed number of characters, and when that's exceeded, you elide the missing characters with ellipsis, even when there is more than enough room to display the full name.

    I have a similar problem exchanging files with a fellow Mac user in that the files always need to be relinked whenever we pass the InDesign doc back and forth.
