Apologies if this has been asked before, I couldn't find a matching question so thought I'd ask anyway.
Is there a way of preventing the Tridion CME from opening an item when you search for a tcmId in the CME search?
Our client is using tcmIds heavily for locating components which they would like to add to pages etc and the issue they have is that the CME is opening the component in a new tab, rather than just returning the item within the CME list view. This means that they have to then look for the component's location in the Content Manager, browse for the folder and then add the component that way.
Would it need to be a GUI extension to prevent the new window from being opened and to allow the search to actually search in the usual way?
This is a question for both Tridion 2011 and Tridion 2013.
