So have I understood your suggestion right, what you are suggesting is that
if a person is scrolling through a large list of files by holding down up or
down instead of moving through the list of files they get taken to a list of
the alphabet, from which they then select a given letter and once selected
are jumped to the start of the section in there list of files that begins
with that letter?
I hope my message is clear.
The question is though how would you deal with numbers and non alphabet
characters with such a feature? I think this feature would have to have some
kind of setting as well.
