You can easily implement OR search in your projects. Previously you had to add the same field twice or thrice to the search panel in order to implement the OR search. Now all you have to do is to make the search field a lookup wizard and enable multi-select on the search page. Now you can easily display orders that belong either to Customer 1 or to Customer 2 or to Customer 3. Configure CustomerID as a Lookup wizard, choose 'Different settings on each page' option, make it multi-select on the Search page, leave it single select on Add/Edit pages.
Here is how it looks in the generated application.
Here is the video that explains how to configure OR search in version 10.4.
