Description phopedush 2013-06-17 17:59:47 UTC
When browsing files in the file pane (either details, compact, or icon mode), one can begin to select the file they want by starting to type its name. However, if a filename with an underscore is typed, matching ceases at that point. For example, If i have two directories called:


and start typing "core_a...", the selected file will remain on "core_aaa".

Notably, typing a file or directory name into the address bar does not exhibit this behavior.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create two directories with identical prefixes followed by an underscore, and differing suffixes
2. Attempt to select the file with the second name (alphabetically).
3. Observe that dolphin begins to ignore keystrokes as soon as the underscore is typed.
Actual Results:  
The selection remained on the first directory, and all keystrokes after the underscore were ignored.

Expected Results:  
The selection should continue to select the appropriate directory after the underscore is typed.

Whoops, I made a typo up in the description. The line that read

and start typing "core_a...", the selected file will remain on "core_aaa".

should read:

and start typing "core_b...", the selected file will remain on "core_aaa".

Make it possible to select files like "a_b" using keyboard search

The problem was that pressing the Shift key would reset the keyboard
