comment How to explain keywords creation to a user who doesn't “get it” intuitively?
Just FYI, TL;DR means 'Too Long; Didn't Read' so it goes with the SHORT version.

Clarified info about tasks.

comment Initial Setup Progress - should I show all required tasks or just next task suggestion?
Sorry, I should have been more clear. It's not that the install process is doing tasks in the background. These are required tasks that the one setting up the application has to do, one of which is connecting it to another server, so there aren't reasonable defaults.

I can include a progress bar in either of the two options as well. Do you think showing the future tasks could be overwhelming?

I'm not clear on whether you are suggesting one of the options over the other, or just concurring that having the setup process broken into tasks will give a sense of progress. Do you feel one of the options above is more helpful than the other?

They're not developers. It would be closer to sysadmin types, and regex would be too complicated. I'm looking for something simple.

comment Should I change how a list is displayed based on number of options?
@BennySkogberg, you are correct. It's an unmodifiable list. I like the bubble approach, and presumably I can figure out a way to display all the results if the number of results are small.
