#3356 closed defect (fixed)

Slow keyboard list navigation when typing file name

Reported by: 2@… Owned by: dkocher
Priority: low Milestone: 3.3.1
Component: interface Version: 3.2.1
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Architecture:


There is about a 1 second delay when typing a file/folder name and you are trying to get to an item that is not the first in the list with the first letter that you type. For example if you have a folder called "images" and one called "includes" and you quickly type "in" to get to the includes folder, it first highlights "images" folder then delays a full second before highlighting "includes". This delay removes the much of the speed advantage of using the keyboard to navigate. When diving deep into a folder structure this adds a second waiting time at each level. Transmit does not have this delay, but it does carry over what you are typing to the next folder, and it is necessary to wait sometimes for the typing buffer to clear. The UI would be greatly improved by avoiding any of these kinds of delay.
