Show a progress bar while uploading a document in the webclient

For the users it is very confusing, that no progress bar is shown while uploading a document. This confusion leads to clicking on next again and again..... or they click on abort after a while.

So there should be an progress bar that shows the upload, or better a new dialog, that shows the user that his click on next startet the upload.

    I tried to enter a mp4 video as a reference file of >10Mb. It took some time when importing, did not see any status bar, but I did get the metadata input pop up window. Then finally after entering all details and finishing manual import of the metadata, I did see the status bar moving with a green bar and "import: succeed". (Only side note question: I cannot/view open an '.mp4' in Meridian... or can I?)

    The reply I received back was: there isn't any information related to improve this process in future releases... This behavior is actually monitoring quantities of documents and not the process of uploading files. --> The status progress bar should show a % upload or at least every 6 sec. a bar movement.

    Lastly, I hope this will be corrected and included as a patch in all existing versions, and not just the latest software!
