keyboard focus in filter bar.

hi there transmission team!

i'd wish for the keyboard focus to switch into the search field when unhiding/ showing the filter bar.

often i find myself wanting to search for a torrent in ALL the torrents in transmission. i usually have the filter bar shown and often some subcategory selected (e.g. DOWNLOADING).

now what i do to search all torrents is:

i) CMD-F to hide/clear teh filter bar
ii) CMD-F to show the filter bar again with the search field cleared and ALL selected
iii) mouseclick into search field OR shift-TAB to bring the keyboard focus to the search field
iv) type in my filter / search

id like to skip step (iii).

instead the search field should have keyboard focus.

good idea?

cheers, jh

ps: bonus-points if you find a way to let me change the search options (NAME / TRACKER) via keyboard. maybe the drop down menu can be added to the items that one can TAB-through....

Is there a way to assign a key-combo (gtkrc) instead clicking the main torrent list window and then shift-tab to get focus of the fitler input area?
