Spreadsheet - typing letters should help select value in drop-down list

Currently, in OO, drop-down lists are not helping the user.
To improve the situation, it would be nice if:

  1. at least, typing a letter put the focus on the values starting with the letter (as in LO):
    (in the above video, I type “f”)

  2. It could even filter the list, to keep only the values matching the typed letters.

Thanks for your analysis.

Hello @arcqus

Thank you for your idea. The suggestion to implement possibility to search in a drop-down list is already registered and I’ve added your query to it.
Unfortunately, I cannot provide any approximate dates on introduction of this feature.
