I was wondering whether the behavior of the select all/select none buttons in e.g. the multiselect widget can be adjusted easily. I often use the search bar to get to a subset of my elements which are relevant for selection, which I would like to (de-) select with one click. I would expect that the select all/none button in this case only affects the subset which matches my search. On the contrary, these buttons are overruling whatever you type in the search bar, applying the (de-) selection on all elements, making it more cumbersome to apply “mass selections” on convenient subsets.
Is this something you are working on?

As far as I am aware, we are not working on this. I do like the suggestion, though, so I have posted a feature request in our internal system.
As a kind of workaround, you could make sure that you populate the multiselect widget with a sub-selection of the total number of possibilities there, instead of relying on the search box alone. For example by displaying only a subset of a masterset in it. Of course I cannot tell how far this applies to your specific situation.
