Currently "Hidden" plugins show up in search results in many places in Studio One, even though they stay hidden when searching in many other areas of the program. I propose that plugins and instruments that the user has "Hidden" shouldn't show up in any Search Results that involve finding an insert or instrument to add to the song.

The following areas currently show hidden plugins/instruments (undesirable behavior, there's a reason we hid them):

- Console -> Add Insert

- Console -> Add Post Fader Insert

- Browser -> Home Window -> Search (CMD+F)

- Track -> Add Insert to Selected Channels

- Add Tracks -> Instrument Track -> New Instrument

Some plugins I've hidden the VST or AU versions due to compatibility issues. I use CMD + F in the browser or Console-> Add Insert as a key command to quickly pull up plugins and this tends to slow it way down.

Changed title and added additional areas of the program where Hidden plugins show up in search results - its crazy how many places they show up.
