Why doesn't the entire list of specimen show up when I change filters? The number of records that appear in the specimen list can be quite large.  In order to reduce the time it takes to build and display the list, its size is artificially limited when you first display a new filter.

This artificial limit can be increased or removed all together by using the Customize settings . . . area.

You can set the initial record limit to any value above 25.

To remove the limit entirely, use the special "unlimited" keyword. ...............................................

You can always get the full list of matching records by pressing the Retrieve remaining filtered matches button.
