Hi, yes here was the previous list posting on the subject. Feature status remains the same.

It sounds like you are hitting the maximum limit of what surgeweb will
display, let me explain as it is a little odd if you don't understand
what is going on.
Surgeweb maintains all the contact information client side in the
browser for fast access for autocompletion etc. If there were too many
contacts the whole surgeweb experience slowed down to the point of
extremely frustrating so surgeweb serverside limits the number of
contacts it returns to the browser to 1000 by default. IE (around
version 7) was the worst affected by this and Chrome (when I last
tested some years ago) was least affected.
So you are probably seeing 1000 contacts displayed in surgeweb when
you really have some more stored serverside and it is showing you the
first 1000 it finds serverside. Note groups count as contact entries
for this count so you may be seeing a little less than 1000.
There is a setting you can use to adjust this limit. In surgeweb
config_*.dat files or users _user.dat files, say:
Just be aware that if surgeweb becomes noticeably slow for the users
in question this may be the reason.
I have been meaning to somehow improve this somewhat odd contact
behaviour but it is a little tricky and as yet remains on the todo
