Topic: Autocomplete input field doesn't support Shift+Home or Shift+End to select text

Bakke premium asked 6 months ago

Expected behavior When pressing the key combos "Shift+Home" (while the cursor is at the beginning of the text) or "Shift+End" (when the cursor is at the end of the text), I would expect the entire text within the input field to become highlighted. This keyboard shortcut works on normal text input fields, and is a nice feature to have for my use case.

Actual behavior The cursor does move appropriately, either to the start or end of the text, however, no text highlighting occurs. I can achieve a similar effect with Shift+Ctrl+Left/Right Arrows, which does work in the autocomplete field, but that is not the keyboard shortcut I or my client-base would be used to.
