The load on demand functionality is in our TODO list. I am afraid that I could not give an exact time frame when it will be delivered. For the upcoming Service Pack(this week) we are going to introduce some improvements. For the major release for sure we are going to add filtering and clear/checkall buttons. In case that you have any suggestions we will be glad to hear from you.
