Right, but there would be one more click for users that use the up/down keys to choose a project (not sure if this is a typical use case)

Hi,

I vote for this issue.
The change in the modern-ui of the select box should be improved : It isn't perfectly usable with keyboard (no first letter jump, no search, ...).

Maybe a keyboard shortcut to go to the search field would be a great way to deal with every one usage.

I vote for this issue, too.
We have a quite big list of projects and at the moment our users complain about the necessity of scrolling up to the search field.
In my opinion entering any alphanumeric key should activate the search-field automatically with the content of the entered key.
There would be no impact for users, who are using the up/down keys.

Another maybe easier approach is to have the search-field always visible. Then at least it can be activated by a simple click without scrolling.

imho this issue is mandatory, at leats the 2nd way, as hloehnert mentioned =>

Which is a bigger problem in touch interface, where having the focus right away will trigger the on-screen keyboard.

+1 from me. Was going to type up a similar request, but found this. It would be nice if that search field was immediately focused so you could start typing straight away.

+1 for the mentioned features :-)

yes, search always visible sounds really nice, activating by a shortcut ALT + S
