Let look at using the keyboard, which for many who use spreadsheets is
3.4 Version
1. Ctrl-Home
2. Alt-Arrow Down
3. Type what you want
4. Enter
5. Results

3.5 Version
2.Alt-Arrow Down
5.Space bar to deselect all
7.Scroll for your item (page down/arrow down)
8. Space bar to select
11. Results

Again I appreciate the redesign, I just think it replaced the wrong
thing. Quick easy access is what the autofilter is for. Add an
additional filter, or replace the standard filter with the new one. This
update has decreased my functionality, and ADDED unnecessary time to my

I agree that it is nice and of course that it adds some things compared with the old design: Both in functionality - easier accessible then in the Standard filter - and in key strokes needed for simple filtering to one item.

I think key handling will be greatly winn with three small improvements:
 a- A as accelerator key for all,
 b- select item by typing a letter
 c- Alt-Enter for OK when focus is in the list area.
Steps 3-10 from above would then be
 - Alt-A
 - Tab
 - <letter> ( + arrow  if needed)
 - Alt-Enter
Compared with the old situation it's only Alt-A and Tab extra.

What do you think?
