Please change the way the parameters search/filter field works to make it more intuitive.

First, my primary issue is that when my cursor is in the search field of the parameters window and I hit the <enter> key I expect the search to be executed. I realize that the search/filter is happening as I type. The problem is that in every other application, even those that provide auto-complete/filter during typing, they all use <enter> to finish the search/filter command. Fusion 360 treats the "OK" button as selected even when the cursor is in the filter text box and <enter> closes the parameters window. This is extremely annoying for those of us with many years of experience with other products. Muscle memory tends to just type a word and hit <enter>. This closes the window and then I have to start over again.

 

In addition, when the parameters window has focus and no text field is selected, it would be nice if the '/' key would jump to the filter text box. Many applications and web sites use that keyboard shortcut to search. As far as I know all browsers have the option to enable the '/' key to open the search page function. If I click outside this textbox on the forum and hit '/' Firefox opens the search function at the bottom of the window and lets me start typing my search term.
