Description Rafał Bursig 2009-01-07 22:08:03 UTC
When we press on combobox with a lot of option in pop-up menu (for example selection language in gdm) then scrolling all the options is not very user freandly and my take a time when we want choose last option.

Allowing user quick selection by presing from keyboard name (while keeping mouse button pressed) of option and jump to first found position (which pass to typed string) in menu may IMHO help a lot.
