Bring back auto selecting lookup value in lookup fields/columns in Unified Interface (UCI)

In Dataverse (CDS) Classic interface when you enter text in a lookup field/column and only one record is found, the form would automatically resolve the value/record. This was quite convenient especially in data entry forms. Currently in UCI, this behavior is lost and the lookup list drops down to manually select the item. Demonstration:

 

In Classic, pressing TAB auto-selects and user can move on to another field:

In UCI, have to select it in the list:

Bring the auto-selection back! 🙂

I wish I could upvote this a million times. So much less efficient.

We've used lookups as replacements for large picklist type attributes but the UCI makes these much less user friendly.
