I've been seeing this issue for at least a couple of months - it may have been around longer.

Proclaim on macOS 11.0.1

While setting up our presentation, I frequently use the "Reuse Item" menu option.

Bringing up this dialogue presents me with a menu that contains a text entry field. Typically I will start typing the name of a frequently used slide. Sometimes I mis-type and need to start over.

The workflow:  Add Item > Reuse Item > click inside "Find" text entry field > begin typing > if I make a typo, or decide to search for something different, then "Command + A" to select all.  > nothing happens.

Given this has been a text selection feature of macOS for decades, and is basically a muscle memory thing for us Mac users, not having Select All work by Command + A is a major flaw.

Can someone please look into this and hopefully fix it so this field responds to Mac keyboard shortcuts the way Mac users are accustomed to?

Good call Benjamin.

Having this enabled would make life easier.
