Add search bar in customize ribbon to ease command findings
Subject says it all. This feature is getting popularity in numerous applications. It would help/ease to locate commands we want to add to the customized ribbons. Much more useful than the "popular commands" preselections.

I would like to add the search widget to the custom toolbar. Also needs an option to turn off the search widget in the title bar, so that the title bar regains its OS-defined roles and behaviors.
Yes, when I want to Customize the Quick Access Toolbar, I like how I can choose from All Commands. However, there needs to be a search field to filter among those commands. It's too daunting to have to scroll the entire list of All Commands that can be added to the Quick Access Toolbar.

Definitely! It's a pain in every office product, and since it seems to be a common screen, the improvement here would be *very* beneficial particularly for Word and Excel.
The "commands not in the ribbon" grouping, in particular, is next to useless. And having to check several verbs and nouns, accounting for how they may be ordered the command name's phrasing, just means you have to start at the very top and read everything to make sure you don't skip past the command you *know* exists somewhere.
