Two questions on lookup fields.

1. Is it possible to set the default on the lookup search popup to more than 5 records?

2. Is it possible to display a file in this table. For instance, we have this file field on a custom object called PDF. I can get the file name or URL on to the table, but it cannot be clicked on. This would allow the user to preview the item before selecting it.

I think your best option is to add a button that opens a popup window.  Shows the records you want in a table.  Just add a row action that updates the lookup field with the Id of the current row.  With the popup, you can control all of these things.

Thanks Bill.   That is a good idea.  Unfortunately the popup table that is behind the magnifying glass is pretty locked down.  In order for the type of customization you are looking for - you'd need a separate action or a custom renderer.
