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?


I guess I'm just not sure what it adds to change this simple filter. It worked and did what it was intended to do. Yes, if there isn't going to be an additional filter type, then then at least what your suggesting would make it usable. I guess I'm from the school of if it isn't broken why "fix" it.

I'm all for new and improved, or adding options for those who maybe never worked in dos ;-) Again, I think it's a nice addition, as the Standard filter is imho clunky, and it still is. This design should be added to that, that is a tickbox situation. It still looks the same.

I'd rather see what is now the "Autofilter" be an "Advanced Autofilter" imho that's really what it is, and revert the AutoFilter to what it was.

It's very irritating when functionality is lost. It happened with the Find my last update, but at least that was an easy fix.
