When saving-as and a filename begins like that of a previously-named file so a
match is found in a drop-down menu, arrowing down to select a name is efficient.
Once that's done, however, the next sensible efficient step is to tab to the
next control in the Save dialog. But tabbing doesn't allow leaving the filename
control, and pressing Enter saves the file without access to the other
decisions. A mouse click is needed to set the location or file type, but mousing
is less efficient than typing shortcuts. So, tabbing should be enabled to get to
other controls in the Save dialog.

The same problem occurred whether the matched filename was edited by deleting
character or not edited at all. A user might match without editing because
intending to change the location.

I'm using OOo Writer 2.4.0 without Java Runtime Environment on Linux Fedora Core
4 with Gnome 2.10.0 desktop on a Pentium 4 laptop.

Thank you.

No file name suggestions are offered when save as with name beginning like an existing named file.
