access huge entity-views in entity maintenance

My co-worker showed me this.

Some of my views are too huge for the entity maintenance screen and there is no "find" link to go straight to a subset of one of these views (There is only a link to "all"). If I click "all", I get an "out of memory" error in OFBIZ. Even if I didn't get that error, I don't want to wait 15 minutes for my view to show up.

A way around this is to right-click on the "all" link and select "copy link location" and paste the results into the address bar of the browser. Then, delete the text after your entity name and press enter. Then you will see a find screen with no records for your entity view and be able to look stuff up without calling up the entire view.
