Adding records from Record Picker - Type in with search button
At the moment if you want to add a record from a form field with the Type in with Search button option, you have to press on the magnifying glass, see the list of available entries, and then press NEW. In many cases this is appropriate, but I have found that I know my data quite well and already know that I am going to be adding a new record. So how about beside the magnifying glass there was a little + icon which allowed me to do that.

It would be nice to be able to set up the record picker so that:
1) The user starts typing & the application shows him the records that match the first letters he typed (like in the Type in with Search option), so that if the name, for instance, that the user is writing is already present in the second table, the full name is displayed & can be selected;
2) If there is no match, the user types the full name (a new name) & upon saving the record the new name is seamlessly added to the second table, without the user having to click on the magnifying glass, then on NEW, then typing the name again when they realize it is not on the list.
That would make for a much nicer user experience.

Is there a way to set it up so that the record picker behaves in this way? That would make things so much nicer & faster for the user. And if there is no easy way to set this up, is there a fix or workaround that can be used to achieve this result?
