only first typed letter recognized with 'find-as-you-type'
I use quick search (or whatever you want to call it) a lot to find items in My Library, where I just start typing and an item will get selected in whatever column is sorted (eg Creator). Formerly I could type several letters and an item would select to match — now it will only land on the first letter typed and won't refine further. Has something changed to make this work differently (not as well)? Thanks.
(The term for this is "find-as-you-type". "Quick search" in Zotero refers to the search bar in the toolbar.)
I also noticed since the update to Zotero 6 that this feature seems to hang a bit. Previously the library was very responsive and would instantaneously jump down (even when I had thousands of entries in a single collection). In 6, there is a delay of a few letters (even at a casual rate of typing) and then the library catches up. The effect might be a little "smoother" now, but it's less responsive and doesn't give the immediate feedback of whether you typed the right letters and/or whether there are (approximate) matches in the library. It's a minor inconvenience, but I preferred the previous version.
(You can see the same behavior in the Firefox bookmarks manager, which is based on the same component that Zotero used to use.)
