ND Mail 1.2 pinning the search bar to the top instead of having to click the search button

Is there a way to pin the search bar in ND mail 1.2 to the top like in the previous version 1.1, instead of having to click on the search button?

Quite a number of users are complaining that there is now an extra click when searching for workspaces in this version.

Hi Mark, I can understand the change control around UI changes. It's worth pointing out to the users that the cursor gets placed automatically in the search box when they click on the magnifying glass so it should be no more clicks than the previous version. We opted to make the dialog/panel smaller by putitng the search into an icon instead of taking up a whole row of prediction space with an empty search box.

Is there a registry setting that we can enable for our users?

Our users find the search box is much more useful than the predictions, and use that more often. Users often complain about incorrect predictions and rely heavily on the search box. The UI change in 1.2 is frustrating our users who feel that it now takes longer for them to find the workspace they are after.

Before rolling 1.2 I highlighted this change and the fact that it's still the same number of clicks because of the cursor position. Still I've seen at least a dozen of my users click the icon, then click in to the box. I personally like the streamlined new look and some of my users do as well. Others are highly annoyed at the perception (incorrect or otherwise) that it's an additional click. Especially if they're already annoyed in the moment that the suggestions didn't suggest the correct location.
I would love to see this as a user adjustable option down the road.
