ReaSearch - Global search bar for Reaper (real-time)
Searches for actions, media, plugins, templates, tags in the manual

Graphical MOCKUP (by Bernstraw):

To recap, this is 'REASEARCH' (refer to Bernstraw's mockup above):

+ Windows 7/Vista-like Start-menu search bar at the top right corner of Reapers main window

+ Search for actions, menu commands instantly. When I type 'heal' the pop-down should show 'Heal splits to selected items', etc. INSTANT-search is the key here.

+ Search for media items, plugins and track templates - search for sampletank and it shows a
draggable result you can drag on to your track. 'Bass' returns the same results as you would from the media bay without opening the media bay window.

+ Integration with manual - a help button besides a search result links the term to a section in the manual.

+ Right click search button option to 'search for media/plugins only, search for media+actions, search for actions only'

+ Make it viewable by default and removable by choice. The goal is not just to speedup workflow, but to help newbies and checking-out-reaper types.

+ User definable shortcut to grab search bar's focus. This way, you type in, say 'bSam' it lists sampletank, or 'bGu' and it shows up guru. 'b' here is the shortcut to 'Reasearch bar focus' from any window. Use pop-up for all windows besides the main arrangement window.
