Securities detail pop-up list

When selecting the security, the pop-up list always starts at the first security - when the security list is extensive, scrolling down the list becomes tedious.

Would it be possible:
1. for the pop-up list to start at the last selected security?
2. to allow security selection by typing (as in the transaction register)?

    I second this suggestion. I have an account (wealthfront) that buys a lot of individual securities so it can do tax loss harvesting (rather than buying index ETFs). It would be much faster if I could type the security to get to that one.

    In the security field type in the first few letters of the security name and the pop-up list should narrow.

    I was referencing the securities detail view of an investment account (i.e., searching for a security to allocate lots). There is no way that I'm aware of to get to a security except scroll through the entire list. If you are in a transaction register you can use the search field at the top or on a new transaction you can start typing the name of the security, but in the securities detail view you can do neither. The search box is shown but if you type in the search box it takes you back to the register view.

    I'm sorry I misunderstood.

    If you start in the portfolio view and click on a security it opens to the security details window for that particular security. i find this the easiest way to get to a particular security rather than scrolling through the securities detail window

    Interesting suggestion, but If you need to handle more than one security, you then need to scroll through the list, or go back to the Portfolio view and repeat the procedure...

    I believe the initial suggestion in this discussion is still worth some attention by the programming team.

    I will put in a feature request for some form of security search feature in the securities detail window.

    I'm very sorry the feature has not yet been implemented, I have updated the suggestion ticket, but I am not sure when it will be considered.
