We are not aware of the described problem with the search dialog. I have also tried to reproduce the issue with file nearly 30MB containing around 18k pages, but with no success.
In order to investigate further the problem, we will need the problematic file. Could you please open new supper ticket and attach the document in question, as the forum thread will not allow different attachments then images. Exact steps to reproduce the issue are welcomed as well.
