I realize this is a small improvement but I do this dozens of times a session so every little bit counts. When the user is inserting plugins from the mixer window or the channel inspector, I think that pressing Enter/Return should automatically insert the top search result if the focus is in the search bar and a search query has been made.

I realize that you can press the down arrow and then enter but I think it would be easier to type the plugin name and just hit Enter. Maybe at the very least pressing enter should highlight the top plugin so I can press enter twice to insert it. Situation shown below:

In this situation pressing Enter takes the focus away from the search bar, but that's it. I still have to navigate to the plugin with my mouse or keyboard to insert it.

Also, a related request which would save a lot of mouse movements: Clicking the Add Insert Button Should Place the Focus on the Search Field
