Support for autocomplete when searching for glyph

description

It would be nice to be able to start typing into a text box when searching for a character by name or enum and see a dropdown of available options filtered by the characters you've already entered.

I agree, it would be nice to have Search functionality using glyph name, and also to have some kind of table between AppBarButton Symbol <-> glyphs:

This is now implemented and will be available in the next release.

More info: already today you can already see the AppBarButton glyph name for the currently selected character in the "Enum" field or type in that same text box to search for it. Note: The enum text box is only shown when on the Segoe UI Symbol font.

The new version will allow you to see a list of possible values as you start typing. For example, if you type "ca" in that text box, you will see a popup list showing "Cancel", "Camera", ...etc.
