Would like to put the "Quick Filter" controls at the bottom of the Object List view.

The "Quick filter" controls are too wide when  placed on the left or right side of the Object List view when the Object List view is tall and skinny.

I run with the Object List view oriented vertically along the right-hand side of the RDi window, just wide enough for Name, Type and a little text using a 10-point font (so not very wide).  The assumption made by the "Quick Filter" controls is that the Object List view is oriented horizontally along the bottom, so the "Quick Filter" controls display along the right-hand side of the Object List view by default.  It can be relocated to the left-had side of the Object List view, but not to the top or bottom.  Since my Object List view is tall and skinny, there is little room to place those controls and still have them visible at all!

Another benefit of placing the "Quick Filter" controls at the bottom of the Object List view is that showing the "Quick Filter" controls won't need to mess up the column widths in the Object Table; they never go back like they were when the "Quick Filter" controls are again hidden.

    Although the theme of this request is consistent with our business strategy, it is not committed to the release that is currently under development.
