Drop-down list in Base no longer immediately accessible

I have just updated from LibreOffice 6.4 to 7.0. I mainly use LibreOffice for Base, and have a Form where one column is a drop-down list of values taken from a Table. In v6.4, when I tabbed into this column, I could start typing a value and it would be automatically found in the drop-down list. In v7.0, when I start typing, nothing happens. I have to use the mouse to open the drop-down list before the keyboard does anything. This slows me down hugely, so causes a big drop in productivity. Is this change by design, or is it a bug?

Thank you - I agree. That bug report just didn’t pop up with the search terms that I used!
