Please allow the cursor up/down keys to move from the text field down though the menu sections and back in the Docs, Guides, and Tools menus. Currently tab is the only key that moves from text to the first menu section and from one menu section to another. That's great, but it would be more convenient if up/down also crossed those boundaries and probably the behavior that most would expect in a menu. Using just up/down is much more convenient that juggling a combination of tab to section and then arrow around in section to get to the item.

I've created a case to consider adding this functionality.

Even this doesn't work for me on Mac. It's seriously frustrating to HAVE TO use point and click after typing in the find box.

I would beg that in addition,  automatically select the top hit (or at least when typing has filtered down to a single guide/tool) and allow a simple Enter key-stroke to open it.
