Description edburns 2004-03-26 16:26:37 UTC
You all have so many options now, I think it would
be nice to have a little text field with a button
at the top of the options UI that moves the
keyboard focus to the first matching option in the
text field when the button is pressed.  Subsequent
presses of the button will go to the next hit, and
will wrap without asking "do you want to continue
your search from the beginning".  

Also it would be cool if you could implement "/"
style mozilla type ahead find in this UI as well.

Thanx. We are aware of problems of current Options dialog and it must
be completely redesigned.
