I will look into this, but i remain unconvinced at this point that it actually changes the opf content rather than the file date.

No I do not have that feature set. ...BUT there is a switch in the same menu called "Limit the search metadata". I tried that. It makes a huge difference to response time when searching direct fromt he search bar with free text! Wow. Thanks for the tip!! Now I will look into the sluggish behaviour in other areas - to see if any of them are also sped up (later - bedtime now...). But this tip is a big help with responsiveness for vanilla searching. Thanks!!!
