Autocomplete folders

First time user here. I have imported a pretty significant structure of directories into EagleFiler, some of them with long names. My question is: is there any kind of “folder autocomplete” feature for quickly filing records into one folder or jumping to specific folders? Using the native app menu for that is a little bit cumbersome as for my folder structure there are hundreds of nested submenus.

Alternatively, I am missing some kind of bookmarking but I understand this can easily be done with Smart Folders.

When you have the Move To menu open, you can begin typing the name of a folder to jump to it in the list.

Or, if there are particular folders that you often want to move to, you could create scripts to do that (and assign them keyboard shortcuts, if you want). For example, something like:

tell application "EagleFiler"
    set _records to selected records of browser window 1
    repeat with _record in _records
        set _dest to library record "Subfolder" of library record "Folder" of root folder
        set _record's container to _dest
    end repeat
end tell
