[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Voila! You can already search within a collection

For me, control-f searches whatever is visible on the screen (including
stuff that would be visible if I scroll down). So if I open all the series
and subseries so that I can see the list of components, control-f will
search that list. If I want to search a big collection, I start opening the
series from the bottom so that I don't have to wait for each series to open
completely before I can click on the next one. If you have a lot of
nesting, it can take a while to do this and it's easy to miss a subseries
so that you are not searching whatever is in that one. For the most part,
it works pretty well.
