Search across all of your Projects/transcriptions

Now you can search in the Project Browser for keywords in your transcripts. Finally! Search will match transcripts, Composition names, marker names, speaker labels, Project names, inline notes, and filenames.
Waveforms are now colored by speaker label
improved
Each speaker gets its own color! This is especially cool in Sequence Clips because it helps you see when several people are speaking at the same time.
