Feature request: Library search drop-down, keyboard control


Thank you for the improvements in 1.2.4.

Could I ask if you’d consider a keyboard-shortcut for the drop-down list in the library search text-window? I use ‘field’ searches all the time. When I don’t find what I’m looking for with one search I frequently try another ‘field’.

I get back to the window with CMD+OPT+F but it would be really helpful if I could access the drop-down menu without moving my hand to the mouse. Say… an OPT key-press to drop the menu with the top item selected? Then I could move through the menu with the arrow keys, hit enter and search the next field.


Seems like a good idea. Do you mean that you want to press just the Option key, or did you have a key board shortcut in mind involving Option. In any case, I don’t know whether this will be possible. At first glance, it doesn’t look like Apple provides a way to programmatically show the menu.
