Disable Layer Search in Layers Window
Illustrator v 27.7
Mac Studio 2022
Mac OS 13.5.1 (22G90)
Please allow for disabling the layer search function. The Layers window search field randomly activates, especially when opening new files from a template and when opening exitisting files to make revisions. This is incredibly frustrating. For example; when I open a file and try to select the type tool by hitting the T key, I just end up typing a line of T's in the layer search bar. When the search function is active it appears as if there are layers missing in the file, making it difficult to find layers and objects. It is making too much extra time and work just clicking around to navigate my own files. Please remedy this with the option to remove/disable this feature from the Layers window. Thanks, Adobe
There is an existing request about this (http://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/333657/suggestions/46935631), but since it’s more a bug report, I am keeping them separated.
Zach, can you try to catch the exact moment and circumstances of this 'focus steal'?
