Navigation by keystroke

Only a bug with versions > 2.0.

When using either the navigation window (with folders down the left, folders and files in the right), it used to be possible to navigate folders using keystrokes, so typing in the first few letters of a folder name would instantly place the selection on the first folder, you could then press enter and navigate into that folder.

This is the same functionality that is built into Windows and allows you to navigate folders (via Explorer) very quickly. Version 2.0 seems to break this in that when you navigate into a folder, focus to the pane is lost, meaning that further keystrokes are impossible.

For instance, so you want to get to Program Files > Smart FTP from being in the C: drive. Previously you could type in pro, enter, sma, enter and you're in the folder. Now you type in pro, enter then have to manually mouse click the navigation pane again. Contrast this with version 1.x behaviour where this sort of navigation was possible.

I've checked the latest version (beta) and still no luck. System info for the curious:
