Hi I just wanted to find out where any discussion on changing the
auto-filter to what would better be called a standard filter took place.
No idea, but I can help you a little with your reasoning below.
(Though it does not really belong to this list. UX, or users@ would be better, I guess)
The auto-filter which was quick and easy has been replaced with what
would be better termed a standard filter. The ui should have replaced
what was being used for the standard filter and the auto-filter left alone.
It triples the time it used to take me to find what I'm looking for.
Since you use your key board, as I do, a typical use case now is:
1- Ctrl-Arrow Up to get to the to row of the range
2- Alt-Arrow Down to start the filter
3- Tab to go to the part with the items
4- Page down/arrow to find your item
5- Tab to go to the part below
6- Enter to confirm
(Alt-Enter or Enter in step 5 would have been better)
Hmm, obviously not so fast as just typing the letter you are looking for. But still fast, and much faster then mouse scrolling, IMO.
Of course, if searching on a typed character can be added, that would help.
