          Would you care to share the add-in that you created or at least provide a demonstration video?

              I'm adding a suggestion that this feature work in Continuous Forms view, where the filter can vary from row to row.

                      I've written my own Linked Table Manager using a ListView so I can sort by back end and adjust the column widths. It should be low effort for Microsoft to update the antiquated Linked Table Manager, if they can still find the source code. :)

                        In preparation for the future, it would be nice if Microsoft would add support for this.

                          There are ways to do this already, but I agree that a built-in method would be helpful.

                          One way I do this is to create a large textbox behind all of the controls in the detail section. I create a hidden textbox control in the form header that has the current record ID as the control source. Then I apply conditional formatting to the large textbox when the record ID of the row is the same as the hidden textbox. There are plenty of examples of this available online.

                          The disadvantage I've experienced with this method is extra screen flicker when changing records. I think Microsoft could add a property to the format tab of the Form Detail properties for Selected Back Color (similar to the implementation of Alternate Back Color). Their implementation should be faster and have less overhead than my method that flickers.

                              @David: While you're waiting you should check out this Enhanced Message Box Replacement. It's open source so you can adjust the dimensions yourself. It also supports Rich Text.

                                      As part of us designing on a new Linked Table Manager dialog, we are incorporating related suggestions and requests made in UserVoice and other forums.
                                      Stay tuned.

                                      I'm out of votes but this would be a great addition that shouldn't be hard for MS to implement.

                                        Do any of the home grown progress bars update as a big query is running?
