Improve "find in timeline"
Often, I have timelines with thousands of different clips and cuts, and finding the one I'm looking for can be pretty difficult.
So let's say I want to find a clip which a specific criteria, and I don't have second features to add in the search. Premiere gives me two options: FIND> which only highlights the first clip with the desired feature after my cursor, or FIND ALL> which highlights all the clips with the required criteria.
Now, there are often many clips with the desired criteria, and I need to go through all clips one by one to find the correct one I'm looking for. As mentioned, some timelines are very long and full of clips, so this operation becomes hectic.
Why not to add the option NEXT (like in Microsoft Word or Google Chrome when you find a word): you put your criteria (one or two), Premiere highlight all the clips with those criteria and then you hit NEXT till you find the right one.

Premiere's timeline/bin searching is only useful for the simplest find operations. It's not useful for anything vaguely complex, and it really needs more love, because good media/clip management is a huge deal when working with projects containing mixed formats, frame rates, codecs etc etc.
DaVinci Resolve's "Smart Bin" and "Edit Index" features really gets this right, and I wish Premiere would take a cue from that app in this regard.
