Airtable's record lookup feature used to have a search field in this interface menu where you could type, and it would autosuggest relevant records from your database. We used this feature extensively throughout our project.

Recently, this interface changed so that the field that allows you to type to find autosuggested records is no longer present.

Interesting!  Could you share a screenshot of the Interface element in question?

Hi! Of course, here's an example of how it was before, and how it is now. Note that when the user creates a new linked record to the Product table in the example, there's a search field at the top of that UI dialog. This is a small change but affects our project in a lot of ways so it would be wonderful to figure out how to get that search field back. And thanks for your help!

That's really strange, I still have that functionality here:

Could you try creating a new base and seeing whether the issue persists?  If it does then we at least know it's down to some setting within your original base you know what I mean?
